Gareth Edwards RWA: After the Rain
3 - 27 November 2017

 

 

Gareth Edwards' work has slowly evolved in recent years from abstraction toward a more specifically landscape based approach. The paintings remain open and free with abstracted elements but are now more spatial, more elemental and evoke emotional weathers and poetic atmospheres as much as topological features. This exhibition debuts Edwards' work at David Simon Contemporary following the artist winning the 'David Simon Contemporary Prize" at the Royal West of England Academy, 2016. A new body of ceramics by Gabriele Koch has been carefully selected to accompany this exhibition.
