About

Modern Victorians: Recording and Classifying. A show by David J Edge, Clive Wheeler and Kester Savage

Winged
Is my own personal collection of winged insects, but as a modern Victorian I have avoided the Formaldehyde. Starting with some experiments in watercolour painting to investigate shapes and colours I went on to create new photogram insects using colour photographic paper in the darkroom at Photo Parlour.
Clive Wheeler

A Dissection of the High Street
Is my attempt to separate out the layers of the high street today, to show that there is more to it than moribund commercial enterprises. I have tried to abstract the layers using separations and different processes.
David J Edge

Collecting at the Edges.
This body of work, which is ongoing, is site specific and has come about through the simple act of collecting. It celebrates no sprawling wilderness, no national park; just some fields and scrubby woodlands with a brook running through it. It is a quiet reflection on the overlooked plants, sidelined to pockets of urban wilderness where they sustain the biodiversity that is so rapidly diminishing.
Kester Savage
