'Consulting the muse; Investigating fiction as stimulus for visual expression'

In practice-as-research, Ian spent the duration of his dissertation investigating fiction as a stimulus for visual expression. As a result, the final artwork intends to merge the process of inspiration and creation into one visual experience, displaying art as interwoven with primary sketches and quotes from fiction. On this journey of study, Ian consulted the work of phenomenological philosophers, literary theorists, and a surrounding context of artists and writers.
