Bryan Ingham is an English painter, sculptor, collage and graphic artist. He attended St Martin’s School of Art from 1957–61, Royal College of Art 1961–64 and British Academy, Rome 1966. He was given a number of awards including an Italian Government scholarship, The Leverhulme Research award and an award from Atelier Haus, Worpswede, Germany. Ingham’s work engages with the crucial period of Cubism from 1912–1916 and the work of Picasso, Braque and Gris in particular. However, his interests and inspirations are diverse and include the work of Kurt Schwitters, Robert Rauschenberg, Giorgio Morandi and even Piero della Francesca. Ingham’s work concentrates on both real and implied space within the surface of the picture. This often entails relief or collage. It is perhaps of little surprise that he found an affinity with ‘carving and quarrying’ plates as an etcher. He later took to interpreting his ideas in three-dimensions with similar subjects of still life cast in to relief sculptures.
