Ian David Spencer

Through visionary art we can explore the intersection between a reality and the imaginary. We can transcend the boundary from what we know to be real, to capture the dreams and the imaginary realms that exist in our subconscious. In doing so we open the mind to a visual feast of ideas, possibilities, curiosity and perhaps even enlightenment.

I employ a combination of photography and digital media to create my imaginary worlds. But ultimately it is my vision, intuition and creative mind that captures the final piece. My philosophy is to create work that is unbound from conventional trends, even off the wall.

My inspirations include nature, ancient archaeology, the mysteries of the cosmos, mystical tales, science fiction and fantasy. Anything that expands and challenges my imagination or where I feel a spiritual connection.

We live in a world that is turbulent and at times dark. But the light is always there and always will be. I believe my work, ultimately, focuses on this lightness on a spiritual level. To help the viewer on a journey in which they could find peace, positive feelings and healing vibes. For the viewer, immersing themselves in my ideas through my work can help them to transcend their darker times. When this is achieved, they have become a participant in my own journey.

Most of my prints are Giclees using archival photo and art papers with archival inks. I will also print to canvas and occasionally metal. All my work seen here is for sale with prices starting from as little as £12 for a small glossy photo print to no upper limit which depends on size, media and complexity. I also work to commission and welcome enquiries in this respect. A selection of my portfolio can be viewed on my website at:
