About Ian Hobson
A lapsed neuropharmacologist, I am currently preoccupied with the medium of long exposure light painting photography. All images are photographs, and not digitally enhanced in any way, being 100% 'Straight out of the camera', though RAW conversion is used to generate larger prints if they are required.
My works mainly reflect a fascination with the 'cup and ring' tradition of prehistoric rock carvings, and their indication of the commonality of human consciousness across space and time.
As a member of the Light Painting World Alliance, I am keen to advance awareness of this artform, effected through my light painting workshops.
Artist in residence, Tyneside Cinema, 2012.
