An exhibition of the late Ian Fraser's work, former Middlesex fine art lecturer

Ian Fraser was a full time lecturer in Fine Art at Middlesex long before it became Middlesex University.

His teaching career spanned the time that fine art was a subject delivered at Hornsey College of Art in Crouch End, through to Middlesex Polytechnic at Alexandra Palace, briefly again at Crouch End and finally at Quicksilver Place in Wood Green, where he was to become Head of Department. This was to be a brief tenure due to Ian’s tragic death in 1986, at the age of 53.

Ian’s work is the testimony of an unassuming and very private individual. Throughout his life, he developed a working practice where the work itself became his muse.

The dilemmas that he negotiated are extremely familiar; artists who remain artists do so because they have a reason, it is invariably hard and those who discover other priorities move away from art. For those who persist, the rewards are frequently the insights achieved and the work itself.
