The gallery is pleased to announce its second solo show by American painter Ed Blackburn. The exhibition offers a brief survey of the artist’s fascination with the images of popular culture spanning from 1973 to the present.

In the early 1970s Blackburn began deriving his imagery through an eclectic approach to appropriating and combining images and styles from various cultural sources – a practice which he has continued to this day. Often choosing images with a depth of meaning, the artist welcomes the tension between the narrative disruption of the visual experience and painting’s ability to free the imagery and its meaning – a predicament that the artist likes to call an “edge.”
