Welcome to the foldy-verse!

Hello, Friend.

My name is Ian Forbes and this is my world.

Into the foldy-verse

The Foldy-verse is defined by my art making sensibility. This sensibility is expressed through unexpected combination and recombination of imagery, materials, and texts. Products of the Foldy-verse use Foldy Booking – a stream of consciousness technique sparked by the continuous format of accordion fold books - to explore the magical/alchemical landscapes of the imaginary and the marvelous. The Foldy-verse is the unity of my numerous books, objects, drawings, paintings, prints and installations
