And our eyes scan Time
21 January - 19 March 2006

Ian Stephenson was born in County Durham in 1934 and was educated in Northumberland and Newcastle upon Tyne. He lived and worked in London and at his studio in North Northumberland until his death in 2000.

Stephenson's paintings are layer upon layer of dots creating a stippled surface characteristically made by drops of paint falling on to canvas or paper.

He met James Hugonin when Hugonin joined the MA Course at Chelsea School of Art in 1974, of which Stephenson was Course leader. They remained colleagues and friends for the following 26 years.

Hugonin is curator of 'And our eyes scan Time' and has selected works by Stephenson in the period 1967-72, at a point when Stephenson's work was hugely influential to a generation of young artists at the beginning of their careers.
