ride the wave...



The very cool work of South African artist Paul Edmunds...



simple, minimal, process based all derived from a  personal perspective.




All the works seen are from the same show:

Subtropicalia began with a short story I wrote recounting my childhood in Johannesburg in the 1970s and 80s and my enduring interest in skateboarding and surfing. My work, which is characterised by a concern with process, pattern and material, tends to be received with an emphasis on its abstract properties. With Subtropicalia, using my story as a template through which to view the work, I track how memory, sensory phenomena and abiding interests inform my exploration of materials, forms, repetitive processes and design.



See work of a music inspired exhibit, Pitch, here.
