“I might have an interest in a particular conjunction of two things – the relationship of a cup-handle to a cup, for example,” says Ian McKeever.
“It’s often very small things that fire my imagination, it’s rarely big things; within their relationship there’s something interesting: the way that the inside and outside are connected, or an expression of an emotion, or a bodily feeling.”

Peter Riley, Curator of the Young Gallery, adds: “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate Ian’s multi-faceted work here at the Young Gallery on such a substantial scale. The title Weight & Measure supports the intention of the exhibition providing an opportunity to evaluate reflect on selected prints and process.”

His work is recognised throughout Europe and the USA.
