Ian and Rae-Sarah formed their collaborative practice in 2013. Despite both having very individual approaches to their own signature styles, they have worked together to developed a successful method of creating their artworks. The pair are constantly evolving body of contemporary and decorative artworks as a team.
The combination of two unique talents has resulted in th...e creation of one cohesive practice. Their art seeks to explore the complexity of contemporary life in relation to the constant ‘journeys’ we are on and the objects that we collect and discard along the way.
Rae-Sarah Weedon has had a lifelong love of art and creativity in all its forms: she won her first painting competition at the age of 5 and has been emerging ever since.
Having studied at Winchester School of Art for six years, she graduated with a First Class Honors Degree in Visual Art in 2007, then with distinction in Master of Fine Art in 2009. During her time at the University of Southampton she contributed to both post-graduate conference and a published research journal.
Rae-Sarah’s areas of interest are varied; from hyper-realism to transient concept, the basis of her personal practice is a desire to communicate shared issues of thought, memory, the symbolic logic of the individual and psychological concerns of relationships and the human condition. Her work has an ever-present, ethereal thread expressed through various media from detailed line works on paper to Video Art.
Ian Williams is a Contemporary Artist working with a range of media from paint, ink and paper to a variety of found objects in order to produce visually engaging originals and, occasionally, limited edition prints.
He had no formal art school training, opting instead to start his working life as a Russian linguist in the Royal Navy. However, Ian later went on to spend the majority of his career as a Creative Director, Writer and Producer within the film and television industry. He has won awards both in the UK and the United States for his work.
Ian is continually building his artistic practice. His work has been short-listed for the National Open Art competition 2-years running; he has sold work to private individuals and via a number of galleries; and was commissioned by Mike Weatherly, MP., to create two pictures of electric guitars - Rory Gallagher's beat-up Fender and Zakk Wylde's Les Paul - all very rock 'n' roll.
