Ian Berry has emerged as an exciting young British artist over the last decade. He has been making figurative paintings and installations of denim for over 15 years. He uses discarded jeans, cuts them up into pieces and sorts according to hue like a painter places his colour nuances to his palette. At first glance the work seems two-dimensional, but when you zoom in, you can see how different layers of denim are placed on top and over each other. The ‘paintings’ are in fact denim collages so perfectly put together. Ian Berry also makes three-dimensional denim installations, which have been on display on multiple continents and at museums.
