Statement

 

 

Angela Edmonds has been a practising Artist for over twenty years.

Her earlier career was predominantly focussed on figurative mixed media drawing, mainly of urban and rural landscapes drawn on site.These were informed by many years of life drawing and tuition from artists such as Miles Richmond who worked alongside David Bomberg. For three years she was commissioned to work on site to create a series of drawings of The Harlequin Shopping Centre during its development.

Later, encouraged by talks with artists such as Karl Plackman and Helen Chadwick she developed a growing interest in making conceptual  sculptures using everyday objects and from these she also made related large scale drawings and photographic works. Edmonds's sculptures are not about practical skills or techniques but rather about concepts, the unspoken, the surreal in the everyday expressed through a lightness of touch and inspired by artists such as Meret Oppenheim. Small assemblages now form the mainstay of Edmonds's work.

The Artist welcomes opportunities to exhibit her work and for commissions to create new work on a particular concept or for a particular venue. Any questions just ask via the Contact tab. Thanks.
