About The Artwork

For the 2019 'Deceived with Ornament' show at her gallery in Copenhagen, Renata Maiblum said, "Ian Hoskin ́s works are repetitive images of colourful circles with dark background. Their appearance of three-dimensionality and lightness remind us of floating candies at amusement parks. The images are actually of tyres wrapped by manufacturers in various plastic foil. With the different wrappings and logos, they compete with each other for customers’ attention. Hoskin ́s simplicity of representation and his careful treatment show viewers the possibility of excavating beauty in everyday objects. Tyres possess significant importance in the life of their users. Hoskin's take here is the different attitudes we may have in relation to everyday objects at the centre of our lives." I was fascinated with the appeal and vivid colours: They looked edible, like sweets and I was drawn to make 'portraits' of as many variations as I could find. Sri Lanka is rapidly embracing car ownership. As with the West there is considerable congestion in some urban areas, but the purchase of new tyres remains a novelty there, hence the need to have an extra edge to attracting customers. This one is Tomato and Black on Silver. Paper size 61 cm x 61 cm. Image size 57cm x 57 cm. Printed on Innova Smooth Cotton High White Matte 315gsm paper using Ultrachrome HDR inks. Signed, numbered, titled and dated on verso. Certificate of Authenticity included.

Born in 1955 in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and could not wait to get away. Spent time after finishing an ignominious school career in Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan Pakistan, India and Nepal. Then studied Photography at Sheffield Poly, starting in 1979. Did Teacher Training and taught for 1 year at a school in North London which was more than enough. Subsequently worked for Warner Brothers in a non photographic capacity and the BBC both Teaching and Photographing. I have recently returned to working with traditional, wet processes alongside digital. The images in my portfolio start in the 70's and go through to the present day.
