Gareth Edwards

Gareth Edwards artist in his studio

Gareth Edwards’ paintings gift to us the luxury of endless space and solitude. Through the stripping away of material reality, they allow us to stand unhindered at the boundary of self, to look outward across an internal world, a liquid plane of shifting beauty, thought and feeling.

As a child Edwards was given a Larousse Encyclopaedia of Oceanography, and at the image of an immense tidal wave experienced a ‘sublime terror’ which never left him. In his adulthood, years spent chasing the echoes of some richer, more vivid inner life finally drew him back to an intense and revelatory relationship with the sea.
