Show #16: Finding The Way by Simon Edwards

30 August - 30 September 2018

Simon Edwards upcoming exhibition ‘Finding the Way' at The Central, showcases his wonderful drawing talents – in framed works of charcoal on paper. Edwards recently returned from research in China where he studied their long tradition of the landscape sublime in scroll painting. That influence can be seen here in the steep, vertiginous aspect of the scenes depicted, and in the lovely materiality of charcoal worked into paper. From dark to light, from rich velvety blacks to rubbed back whites, Edwards’ eye for detail is meticulous, and the overall impression beautiful and very elegant.
