Ed Saye

Ed Saye continues to gain recognition and progress in his career – he is currently exhibiting in a group show hosted by Contemporary British Painting in London at the Crypt Gallery, St Marylebone Parish Church – the show ends this coming Friday, March 23rd at 5pm.

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.

Ed completed his MFA in painting at the Slade School of Art in 2009 and has exhibited regularly since then and gained notable attention – it’s a good time to invest.

‘These images all have a sense, but not more than that, of something that was or could be there.’ – Aaron Betsky in his essay Limbo Architecture: Painters of Modernism.
