Ed Kluz’s work 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.
Montacute House, Somerset, is a masterpiece of Elizabethan Renaissance architecture and design, with towering walls of glass, Hamstone, and surrounding gardens. Sir Edward Phelips was the force and money behind the building, which was completed in 1601. The vicar of Montacute between 1885 and 1918 was the Reverend Charles Francis Powys (1843–1923), father of the writers John Cowper Powys, Llewelyn Powys (author of Earth Memories) and Theodore Francis Powys.
