Opening Saturday 17 April 4 to 6pm.
Much of the imagery in Martin Edge’s new body of work revisits urban landscapes he has previously painted. But each time Martin ventures forth from his Strathpine studio he says ‘it’s like seeing places for the very first time’. An unfailing positivity and sense of humour always accompanies Martin on his adventures. The omnipresent depiction of city cats and ferries signify the process of being ‘out and about’.
Vibratory colours and schematic representations of sites encountered translate his joyful, immersive experiences. Dappled in puffy little clouds, skies of yellow, deep orange and pink vault several of his cityscapes. Martin imparts that those colours suggest different moods or times of the day. Cloud contours have always fascinated him, as have water expanses and the bridges that span them.
