Juror

Ian McLean is a Canadian artist based in Sarnia, Ontario. Born in 1966, he studied Studio Art and Art History at the University of Guelph and has been a
professional artist for more than thirty years. He has exhibited at several galleries in Toronto and across Canada and his work is found in private collections internationally. In his oil paintings, Ian presents otherworldly depictions of imagined residential environments – both interior and exterior. Implied narratives in the settings are intended to suggest notions of control, order, and disruption in utopian pursuits.
