Sean Edwards: Drawn in Cursive

The completion is only ever realised in the exhibition environment to undermine the perception of the gallery as a space for fully achieved artworks.Edwards describes this aspect of his practice as ‘artistic intuition’. Objects are gathered and collected intuitively but are all strongly connected. This exhibition will see him working more closely with the collection, to build up the archive and to create an expanding dialogue around it.
