Ivan is foremost a designer and maker with an aspiration to work more sculpturally. His life is one surrounded by artworks, married to a sculptor, and with a work-life making large scale works for significant artists. His interests lie in simplicity, always trying to distil things to their simplest components, breaking down complexity into understandable and manageable blocks be it language, process or materials related. This is reflected in the triangles experiment. Each sculptural form is made up of three identical triangles fixed together in different arrangements. All three of the sculptural forms use the same size triangles. The aim to create emergent forms from a single building block and a playful experiment.
