~ Iain Cheesman

Christchurch, New Zealand, (b. 1963)

~ Combining a love of words ~ hand-crafted canniness ~ and a passion for the preposterous ~ Iain’s work is a perennial favourite at The Vivian.

Iain’s work is hard to define, but often easy to love. Quirky. Thoughtful. And often deeply profound, he marries personal experience with a deeply critical and keen eye for what’s happening around the planet we call home. A published poet, as well as an established maker, Iain’s practice is wide-ranging and encompasses painting, carving, sculpture, embroidery, and woodworking.
