Paul Edmunds ‘Season’ Exhibition


Photographs Courtesy of Stevenson Johannesburg Having exhibited at MOMA in New York and at the Museum Beelden aan Zee in The Hague, Cape Town-based Paul Edmunds is an award-winning artist with a distinct adoration for geometric design, weaving and linocuts, something which can be seen clearly in his latest solo showcase. In this exhibition, he makes use of his favourite techniques to create a range of works in different media, including sculpture, linocuts and installation. The concept behind this body of work is to explore the relationship between the senses and natural phenomena. Says Paul, ‘The works are stripped back to few variables, allowing an in-depth exploration and the registering of small changes. From this address of the particular, the universal is inferred and in this process, I examine my experience as a human animal held by gravity to a large orb, suspended in a near-vacuum, warmed by a star.’ Visit Paul Edmunds’ solo exhibition at the Stevenson Johannesburg until 9 August 2013. The gallery is located at 62 Juta Street, Braamfontein and is open from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday and on Saturdays from 10am until 1pm.
