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.
Belmont House in Lyme Regis, Dorset, is a fine example of an 18th-century maritime villa which once belonged to Mrs Eleanor Coade, the owner of an artificial stone manufactory in Lambeth, London, which mass produced architectural embellishments and statuary. More recently Belmont was home to world-famous author, John Fowles, author of The Tree, The Magus and The French Lieutenant’s Woman.
