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.
Garth Hall was built in Wales at great expense in 1809 for Richard Mytton, chaplain to the Governor General of India. The building was a mixture of gothic and ecclesiastical styles including the use of numerous crocketed spires and ornate roof parapets, echoed in the pinnacled circular stables. It was demolished in 1947.
