In the work of Ian Monroe architectonic space is brought to the foreground, the surface of the work and the materials of its making are given prominence. The artist investigates the nature of idealised space: the showroom, the corporate office atrium, the church, and the hyper real environments of science fiction and computer games. All these spaces cater to, or project onto us, specific desires or lifestyles that maintain certain kinds of collective social myths.
