Just writing a little something to let anyone stopping by the site know I’m still alive and still making stuff, even if it isn’t evident from my web presence.
2020 has been some year, right?

I haven’t posted many new things largely because I have been working on a single large sculptural project that will hopefully be ready to unveil this fall, and I will post more details when they become available.

In the meantime I once again have work in the annual members show at the lovely Banfill-Locke art center in Fridley, info about which you can find here

Hope you all are staying safe and healthy, thanks for stopping by the site and I hope to inform you all of positive developments soon!

Works on display as Mississippi Library, Fridley

LibraryPhotoFull_webThe good folks at the Mississippi Library in Fridley were kind enough to invite me to hang a number of pieces, which will be up on display until December 31st.
This is the first time I’ve had so many of my pieces hanging up in public at once, so I’m very excited about this.

I’m debuting a number of new work here as well and I’ll have photos of these new pieces will be up online shortly for everyone else that won’t be able to make it out in person.

Until next time,
-Ian Nystrom

New work in site gallery

As summer is drawing to a close I’m taking time to document some new pieces (as well as alternate color schemes for older pieces) and get them uploaded onto the site.
The pieces i’m most excited about are the new dimension works, which I will highlight below.

Well is a simple geometric abstract, 6 layers painted PVC, using a color palette that is a personal favorite of mine. The cool aqua colors make me think of calm tidal pools.

Next is a dimension version of the Petals piece I developed earlier. 6 layers hand painted PVC.

Finally for this post we have two more versions of the dimensional Iso piece, purple and green.

Hope you all enjoy the new work, i’ll try to post more in the near future. In the meantime feel free to contact me with and questions or comments about these or any other works featured on the site.

Until next time!
