Ian Walton’s exhibition ‘BREATH BECOMES AIR’ is part of the Memory and Holocaust Reframed programme being held at Windermere Library in the Lake District from September 2016. Travels to Budapest, Krakow and Prague over several years have inspired the work, resulting in a combination of installation, sound and mixed media pieces. The exhibition reflects personal responses brought about through the atmosphere and emotions experienced in the specific locations of Theresienstadt, Auschwitz Birkenau and in the city of Budapest.

    Walton’s work is land based; land as metaphor for time and the mind.
    Just as nature preserves relics and fossils, Walton’s layerings
    of bitumen, metals, ash, wax paint and dust draw into the paintings
    particular memories, subjective and personal.

    Ian Walton has consistently produced work of a rare aesthetic resonance
    and poetic depth, that stand out proud from that of so many of his contemporaries...

    - Robert Clark, The Guardian -
  • Ian Walton’s exhibition ‘BREATH BECOMES AIR

    Walton’s precisely descriptive titles might suggest studies of particular landscapes,
    but they are closer in spirit to visual diaries in which the artist records the emotions and sensations that
    the places evoked. Like the landscape itself, his surfaces are eroded, corroded, weathered and stained.
