New Blood Art Statement

View Investment Tip
Ed Saye’s searching images offer a contemplative reflection of atmospheric locations. Saye makes use of found photographs and intuitive editing techniques to lend his painting a familiar yet slightly anomalous feel.  The use of warm hues and fragmented detailing softens the narrative of each piece and leaves an air of enigma. The ambiguous choice of image, leaves an unsettling doubt about the tone of the scene; it may be an image reminiscent of family vacations besides an intentional absence which seemingly haunts the scene. This balance creates a strong sense of uncertainty and recreates the same specious quality as memory.  In turn, the viewer is left to interpret a space made equivocal through compositional tensions and pleasing handlings of light and tone.

Artist Statement

Each painting is a different version of a fading idyll, a lament for the utopian ideals Modernism. The paintings represent shadowy people, places and things as fragments of fictions and memories. These are happy people in happy places – almost. Idyllic scenes are rendered uncanny by unnatural light emanating from layers of under-painting and a colour palette that makes reference to the faded hues of old photographs and postcards. I use painting to challenge the disposability of imagery in the digital age. The paintings are made slowly, built up in layers on a smooth, absorbent, gesso ground. The intense, often warm, colour of the under-painting dictates the mood. Subsequent layers involve transparent glazes and finally thicker applications of impasto painting, which draw attention to the surface of the painting. I allow the image to dissolve into intricate pattern and abstraction; figures become lost in deep shadow; detail is erased – literally sanded out of the paintings. Through this process the relationship of the image to its photographic sources diminishes and the image assumes a new identity as a painting that offers new narratives and multiple interpretations.
