Latest award – “It’s a Rich Life”
2019 – 1st prize (Professional), Great Summer Art Exhibition, Auckland, New Zealand.
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 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 artists 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 to be aligned with someone else’s trusted stories.
Ian Anderson Fine Art gallery (IAFA) is an invite into Ian’s unique transparent caravanserai on our planet earth.
Like a little boy in an *aging suit, Ian says “I have a lot of playing and creativity to learn before I leave this planet for the next bus stop. Before reaching that destination this fantastic and rich life offers me an opportunity to overcome odds and excel at something great through my expression in the arts”.
The God factor is visibly noted in all my works.
*An aging suit is temporal but the spirit is eternal. Because the spirit doesn’t age, this little boy can play forever.

From the foundations of realism, Ian creates personalized works in visual parabolic realism although he is not averse to having a fling in other genres. All things under the sun have a story and it’s in discovering their stories that Ian finds images to create his parables.
An allegory to inspire
“To create is the essence of Gods character”.
In the realm of creative enterprise, you need insight, open eyes, light, darkness, and the grace of God to live the 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 visibility of painting, photography, leather craft, design, illustration, sculpture, the sciences, food, music, and poetic words speak from the inner world made visible from a creative mind.
Embedded in Ian’s images is a firmly held belief
“The greatest gift God gave to man is not sight; it is a creative vision. The eyes function is sight. The spirits function is a creative vision. Natural eyes see the world. Spiritual eyes, (the heart of man) creates a vision for living. Embedded within every spirit is a hunger to discover something true to idolize and what we idolize will either destroy us or create a life worth living.”
