The View From Here
The View From Here: new landscape photographs by Mark Edwards
24 September 2011 to 8 January 2012
Mark Edwards is one of the most intriguing and thoughtful landscape photographers working today. His work responds to the tradition of British landscape painting and accompanies the autumn exhibition, Gainsborough’s Landscapes: Themes and Variations.
Mark Edwards has produced a complementary body of six large scale colour landscape prints of astonishing quality and detail. Edwards’ huge colour prints mirror the scale of Gainsborough’s paintings and reveal great respect for the painterly tradition, whilst bringing into question the standard by which we measure beauty.
