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.
Hamilton Palace as a large country house located north-east of Hamilton in Lanarkshire, Scotland. The former seat of the Dukes of Hamilton, it was built in 1695 and much enlarged. Widely acknowledged as having been one of the grandest houses in Britain, the palace was demolished in 1927, due to the prohibitive cost of upkeep and the subsidence caused by nearby coal mines.
All framed artwork will be shipped to UK mainland addresses for a cost of £45.
