Secret Places – an exhibition of paintings by Rob Edmondson – A Lancashire Lad.
Originally I was a silk screen printer, a ceramicist and throughout a painter, usually, but not exclusively, in oils and acrylics.
I draw inspiration from the landscapes of the North of England as well as from my travels to places such as: Australia, Singapore, Thailand and New Zealand.
Whenever and wherever travel takes me I look at Art and the potential for Art.
I revel in the physical manipulation of the paint and experimenting with unusual techniques to gain evocative effects. Implicit in each painting is the use of light, colour, depth and movement.
My paintings are representational. Through visual devices I hope to capture the soul, in essence the mood of each special, secret, place.
