artists at the edge of abstraction
Formed in 2004, Abstract Edge is a group of artists who have a shared interest in painting in an abstract or semi-abstract way. With a variety of backgrounds, individually they have exhibited widely throughout the UK. Collectively their work has been shown in different local venues, aiming to raise the profile of abstract art by bringing it to a wider public. Some of the work is semi-abstract, taking a landscape, organic form or still life as its starting point. Some of it is purely abstract, making no explicit reference to the external world but relying on shape, colour, line and texture to create an image which is engaging in it’s own right, to which the viewer can respond. Most people feel more comfortable with shapes that bear some resemblance to reality: the interest of abstract art is that each person brings his or her interpretation to it.
No image has only one meaning.
