IAN COLLINGS - NOW ON VIEW AT CASA PERFECT LA
The Future Perfect is pleased to present new works from sculptor Ian Collings. Holding room for a varied history of references, Collings’ work is at once philosophically engaging and visually poignant. Made as touchstones in a larger cosmology of real, psychic and hallucinatory circumstances, these works live through a formalism that is not an apex, but a genesis.
Collings, who began learning from crafts-people at an early age and professionally trained in industrial design, has employed his skill-sets in various bodies of work and occupations. While coalescing his ongoing sculptural practice, he has often focused on furniture making. In 2018 Collings left Fort Standard, the company he co-founded, to dedicate himself to his sculptural work. After a three year period of incubation and inspiration spent living mostly in the rainforest of Central America, he now splits his time between Ojai, California and Pavones, Costa Rica.

His work is now on view at Casa Perfect Los Angeles.
