Jim Edwards: Onwards and Upwards!
Jim Edwards is best known for his contemporary cityscape and landscape paintings, capturing the iconic locations of the north-east. His work follows a theme of architecturally inspired structures and dominating linear form, with composition evolving from a combination of imagination and selective memory. In his latest work, Jim reimagines his cityscapes from a navigational perspective, while continuing to explore the spatial orientation of the city through its landmarks.
Earlier this year, Jim moved his studio a very small distance, just next door (from 59 to 57 Lime Street), so he could remain in Ouseburn while gaining a much larger workspace. And by combining his studio with a gallery environment, he’s created a unique space to paint in, while showcasing his latest paintings, limited edition prints and greetings cards.
