… An Allegory to Inspire …
In the realm of painting, photography, leather
craft, sculpture, illustration, and poetry
“Before you see the colour you will need …
Light and darkness, eyes, a sound mind, and Gods revelation favor in living”
Here is an invite into the accolades and transparent journey of one Ian Anderson through his caravanserai on planet Earth. The 20th and 21st century artist.
Like a little boy in an *aging suit, Ian still has a lot of playing to do before he leaves this planet for the next bus stop. Before reaching that bus stop this fantastic and rich life offers him an opportunity to overcome the odds and excel at something great. Let us all be teachable and waste no opportunities to make what our greatness maybe, as seen in the eyes of a wonderful God who has given this amazing earth to act out our dreams upon.
*An aging suit is only temporal but the spirit is eternal. Because the spirit doesn’t age, this little boy can play forever.
Embedded in all the images of this Gallery is this firmly held belief:
“The greatest gift God gave to man is not sight; it is vision. The eyes function is sight. The spirits function is vision. Natural eyes see the world. Spiritual eyes in the heart of man create the vision for living. Embedded within every spirit is a desire hungry to discover something true to idolize and what we idolize will either destroy us or create a life worth living.” ~ Ian Anderson

About the artist and the available Fine-Art pieces
These artworks are all prayerfully inspired through my relationship with Jesus and crafted within the mediums of oil painting, photography, illustration, leather art, sculptures, allegories, and poetry. The artworks are created to motivate and challenge thoughtful aspirations in you, the viewers.
The God reason is included, without judgment, condemnation or shame. It is what it is and it will explore cultural and indigenous diversities in the quest to express known truths.
Art through the ages has been an indelible part of humanities want to express their thoughts and hunger for expression through images. Looking at original rock carvings, language hieroglyphics, sculptures, oil painting, illustration and now digital illustrative photography you see echoes of times gone by and the visions of futures dreamed. These passions, philosophies, dreams, and inspirations from our human spirit seeking meaning and purpose to life have legitimate reasons for being expressed.
I am privileged, gifted and honoured to share these offerings from my journey, in the 20th and 21st century. Being inspired by the art of Dali, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Jesus, Da Vinci, Monet, Escher and multiple others I find I am in a rich line of wonderful visionaries. My work will not be pleasing to all but I trust you will delight in its uniqueness, for its own sake. Knowing this to be true, I will not compare my work with any other because my work will find its own unique place.
As free will beings, you will make your own judgments as you see my journeys work unfolded in their progression from depression, confusion of identity, bitterness, and anger to one of abiding peace and the assurance of Gods favour in my own skin. Ian Anderson is a very happy creative.
Enjoy, be challenged and please don’t hesitate to enquire about these many works and the great variety of reproductions offered.
