explore ian's world!
Ian is a Seattle-based artist and designer. In September 2018, he suffered an acute ischemic stroke. Through rehabilitation he was able to regain use of the right side of his body. His painting practice helped to strengthen his arm and to begin the process of integrating his
post-stroke experience with his former life.
Neurological differences, such as a newfound hypersensitivity to light and sound drew him out to the "nighttime" world. Ian Shearer's paintings explore this post-stroke landscape. His urban vistas invite the viewer into a dreamlike world, woven with light and shadow and possibilities.
