Simon Edwards

Simon Edwards was raised in the South Island. He attended Ilam School of Fine Arts at Canterbury University gaining a BFA in 1997 and has continued to live and work in Christchurch since.  Edwards derives inspiration from the surrounding landscape and the changing Canterbury skies.

Terms like monumental, atmospheric, mythological, realistic and inspirational are used by critics when describing his works. At his best Edwards is all of the above.  His work is held in many collections throughout the country.

“The landscape has been the source of my work…The work places itself somewhere between a modernistic reliance on the essential qualities (of the materials and methods of painting), and an awareness of traditional forms of the landscape. I use this as a departure point, for entering into a process of layering and rubbing back, setting up a dialogue between myself, the medium and the landscape. The work becomes a result of reacting to what is happening on the surface at the time, and building on chance effects that present themselves, contributing to a sense of space, distance and movement.”
