Ian Rayer – Smith

I like my work to exude a raw human energy. I want the brutal act of making to be evident in the marks and on the surface.
I am interested in organic forms in decomposition. Soft and amorphous, they accentuate the tactile sense of nature. I avoid any notion of repetition, so as to create something new that will reveal surprising forms. By working quickly, intuitively, and obsessively, I create artworks that suggest a sense of other worldliness.


I use classical references, manipulating and transforming them until they lose their initial context and produce new meaning. Ultimately, the work reveals the physicality of the object and the sensory nature of the materials.

About It’s Art Call

It’s Art is an open call/competition where a group of selected artists will have the opportunity to showcase their artworks at D Contemporary Gallery – Mayfair W1. And one winning artist will have their own solo show

Along with D Contemporary  The Cult House  is a creative group connecting people in various creative disciplines (arts, craft, design, writing, music and performance) with commercial and social events. The Cult House started its collective on Facebook, Instagram Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and LinkedIn, which presents daily tips on several art topics and use all them to help on the promotion and network to get more visibility for our artists.  The aim of the collective is to boost visibility online as much as possible for both parts, for the company and more importantly for the artists within the online gallery, maximising all our connections and advertising the artists’ profiles as well as important events.
