Edward Clayton


18 - 24 July 2013


Edward Clayton, a final year student at Bucks New University, celebrates the materiality of paint with a series of oil paintings on aluminium. Clayton explores the concept that paint has the potential to represent itself purely as a medium whilst simultaneously suggest something other than itself.


Whilst the paintings are often derived from Clayton’s observations, they avoid any specific interpretation by suggesting rather than describing imagery. By creating abstract works in this way, the artist creates imaginary forms that are an amalgamation of past observations. The viewer is encouraged to consider the duality of the painting medium in the physicality of the paint and in their own interpretation of the subject matter.
