Exhibition of collages and prints by prominent British artist Ed Kluz with an accompanying collection of terracotta vessels by Silvia K Ceramics.
Inspired by the rich architectural history of Bath and the surrounding area, Ed has created a new body of work to be showcased at Quercus Gallery in the first of his solo exhibitions this year. New collages and prints will feature along with selected works from Ed’s recent series of magnificent large-scale collages; ‘The Lost House Revisited’ and a collection of his distinctive fabric designs.
Expect refreshing perspectives of Bath and depictions of iconic buildings, such as Beckford’s Tower and the Holburne Museum, seen through the eyes of an artist who finds fascination in the eccentric, the lost and overlooked aspects of our cultural heritage
An online catalogue will be released ahead of the show with works available to reserve.
ED KLUZ is an artist, illustrator and printmaker, based in East Sussex. His work explores contemporary perceptions of the past through the reimagining of historic landscapes, buildings and objects. The ideas of early Romanticism, the Picturesque movement and antiquarian representations of topography and architecture underpin his approach to image making.
Ed has held a number of solo shows and significant group exhibitions across the UK most recently as part of ‘Nostalgia & Progress: Illustration after the Second World War’ at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery, University of Leeds and his highly acclaimed solo museum show ‘The Lost House Revisited’ at Mascalls Gallery, Kent.
As a designer and illustrator Ed has received commissions from the V&A, Faber, Folio Society, John Murray publishers, Little Toller Books and St Jude's fabrics.
Ed Kluz was born in 1980 and grew up in Swaledale, North Yorkshire. He studied fine art at the Winchester School of Art between 1999 - 2002. He now lives in East Sussex.
SILVIA K is an award-winning potter working from her studio in Brighton, producing original vessels inspired by folklore traditions and Slovak peasant artefacts using various making techniques; press moulding, throwing and slip casting. The addition of leather handles, made from naturally tanned leather, is a particularly distinctive element to Silva’s ceramics. A collection of Silvia K's domestic ware and larger vessels will be available.
