Ed Kluz explores contemporary perceptions of the past through the reimagining of historic landscapes, buildings and objects. The ideas of early Romanticism, the picturesque movement of antiquarian representations of topography and architecture underpin his approach to image-making. Ed was born in 1980 and grew up in Swaledale, North Yorkshire. He studied fine art at Winchester School of Art between 1999-2002. He now lives in East Sussex.
When Ed was the artist in residence at Little Toller, back in January 2016, he researched the lost houses of Dorset for some of the work featured in this show. Ed is showing here at Room at the End, several of his large pieces from his Lost Houses project as well as several smaller indian ink and gesso scraper boards of Dorset houses.
Frampton Court, in Dorset, was built by Robert Browne in 1704, on the site of an ancient priory. In 1790, the park was laid out by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, the house enlarged, and faced with Portland stone. But rumour had it that, at the expulsion of the monks by the command of Henry VIII, the last Benedictine had appeared at the Browne’s dinner table, and placed a curse on them. No first-born son would ever inherit the estate. The house was demolished in 1935.
