“Scottish Artist Dominic McIvor is a painter, but his ideas seem to be essentially sculptural. He works elegantly minimal variations in two dimensions on a set of geometric three-dimensional plaster forms. But even in his two dimensional works, he cuts into the surface of the paper he uses as though it were a sculptural material” The Scotsman 2014
