“It’s a Rich Life”
Judges comments – This painting invited me into its many layers and showed maturity in the artist’s oil brush skills.
It gave me glimpses through serene portals of time and seasons with finely painted motifs that the artist chose to represent some of the richness of life.
The work is layered celebrating the present and the fleeting in the foreground but the underlying base of the painting is what gives us a sense of things eternal and spiritual that is the backdrop for life. The cultural symbolism speaks of virtues’ importance essential to our harmony and the well-being of mankind.
The beautifully executed aboriginal design cleverly harmonizes and marries the artist’s personal cultural past with his adopted NZ home which is part of his identity. I felt the painting calmly thought-provoking and uplifting. Ivan Clarke

About the 20th and 21st-century artist
We all hunger connection and alignment with someone else’s trusted stories.
Ian Anderson Fine Art gallery (IAFA) is an invite into Ian’s alignment and transparent journey under the watchful wonder of heaven.
Ian says, “I am like a little boy in an *aging suit who has a lot of play and creativity to discover before leaving this planet. This fantastically rich life offers me more opportunity for overcoming odds and artistically excel before reaching the next bus stop.”
The God factor is visibly noted in all of Ian’s works.
*An aging suit (my body) is temporal, my spirit is eternal and because the spirit doesn’t age, the little boy in me will play forever.

Ian is a passionate creative who creates personalized artworks from realism foundations forming a visual parabolic insight. He is not averse to having a fling in other genres. All things under the sun have stories and discovering their stories motivates Ian to make images revealing the discovered mysteries in parables.
An allegory to inspire
“To create is the essence of God’s character”.
In the realm of creative enterprise, you need insight, revelation, light, darkness, and God’s grace to live your dream.
“The world of spirit, made in the image and likeness of God, is to be seen and enjoyed on earth … As it is in heaven”.
The visual culture in painting, photography, leathercraft, design, illustration, sculpture, the sciences, food, and poetry speak from an inner world made visible through gifted individual skills. The creative mind inspires insight into the mystery.
Embedded in Ian’s images is this firmly held belief
“The greatest gift God gave to man is not sight; it is a creative vision. The eye function is sight. The spirit’s function is vision. Natural eyes see the world. Spiritual eyes, (the heart of man) creates a vision for living. Embedded within every spirit is the hunger for discovering something true. Truly, we worship what we idolize and what we idolise will destroy or create the life we hunger for.”
