Photographic art has always been more than the image; it is a blending of a visual moment with the movement of the soul, the conveyance of emotion, and the gentle awakening of the intent of the artist.
Blended Nudes takes Edmonds mastery of colour and form to create works that intertwine the charisma of the human form with the organic urban experience.
Subtle and thoughtful composition has resulted in works that have a unique playful personality. The use of blurred lines, soften edges and abstract concepts leave the viewer free to explore, imagine and form their own interpretation of the tones, textures and experience.
Edmond perfected this unique method originally by combining composited black and white negatives; today his own unique process sees digital technology image and editing technology pushed to their artistic limits to produce gallery-quality expressions of Edmonds vision.
A metamorphosis of charismatic nudes and organic urban textures, ‘Under her skin’ (the title of the exhibition) creates fascinating blends of body shapes with naturally organic and manmade elements.
Allow yourself to discover the deep, complex world that Edmond has created.
Bring yourself, your point of view, your baggage, to the art and it will reward you far more than any cursory appraisal could.
You will not regret it.
Edmond’s images have received wide acclaim with his work acquired by astute collectors both in Australian and overseas.
