Ian McAllister

Born in 1966 - Ireland


Born in Newtownards, Northern Ireland in 1966, Ian McAllister studied Fine Art at the University of Ulster. His first solo exhibition was held at Newtownards Arts Centre while still a student.

“My work is most often described as representational painting. I accept the description as I do not know of any other kind of painting; but I am not interested in realism per se. I seek to represent the appearance of an object simply because it is the only way to realise its singular nature. I am drawn to those subjects in which I perceive a deep poeticism, visually available, in what I regard as their “personality” in the circumstance.”
