Ian Davenport’s abstractionism in Poured Lines

Abstract paintings that reveal a great love and a deep knowledge of color. The English painter Ian Davenport became famous for his Poured Lines, simple paintings that assemble vertical lines in a rich variety of colors.

Initially, the artist chooses color combinations by drawing them on a computer, then moving on to the canvas. Ian slowly drops from above color drops that form almost perfect lines. These works show the artist’s smart understanding of color theory and the potential of his repetition process.

Sometimes his paintings have become real installations. In these cases, the painter allows the paint to form color patches in the lower part of the work, creating a marbled effect.
