Ian completed his Advanced Diploma of Fine Art at La Trobe Street College of Art and New Media in Melbourne Australia in 2004. Prior to this, he was a family physician in Toronto for 23 years.
In his oil landscapes, with their obscured grid-works and patterns, Ian seeks to remind us of the silent geometry, which remains hidden from our eyes. This is a theme that links his scientific background as a physician, with his artistic expression. Southern Ontario landscapes are the inspiration for much of his work.
Ian Varney is represented by Koyman Galleries in Ottawa, Ontario.
