Artist Ian Hargrove presents an abstract display of evening light slowly waning at the end of the day. He captures the fractal beams on a concrete wall in predominantly cool and tonal shades. "I was inspired by Monet and his many paintings of the same subject in different lighting," shares Ian. True to his signature style, he applies bright multi-layered patterns of color. The piece is one of two studies of the same subject—the other being Golden Hour—observing and capturing various light interactions at different times of the day. Ian suggests that they go together to complete the narrative.

Artist Ian Hargrove creates mixed-media abstracts with the overarching theme of the interconnectedness of life's moments. His intuitive and instinctual brushwork characterizes personal experiences and time shared with others through line, color, and interactions of various compositional elements. Ian ventured into the fashion industry as the creative director of his brand, giving him fascinating perspectives of beauty and honing his eye for color–the driving energy behind his paintings. "When I started to work more abstractly, the paintbrush felt right in my hand," shares Ian. "I started to make what has evolved into my distinct style of creating smaller colorful paint marks." He aims to bring the mood, tone, and even temperature of his inspiration to the space it occupies and its audience. Ian works from his home studio, a beautiful and amply lit pre-war condo on the north side of Chicago, with the company of his dog Clarke. He enjoys meditating, working out, traveling, and entertaining his friends with good food and quality time.
