'Tranquil Echoes' - a solo-exhibition by artist Dudley Edwards - showcases a collection that has evolved and transformed over decades, reflecting the artist’s’ unwavering dedication to his craft.
Hailing from West Yorkshire, Dudley graduated from art school in Bradford and started a career in the 1960s that intertwined with the popular culture of the day. From music to film to fashion his bright and bold murals, created alongside fellow artist Doug Binder, were synonymous with the 'Swinging Sixties' scene in London.
His own interests and artistic inspiration, though, lie with the artists of the 1900s, particularly those embedded in the Parisian art scene of the early-mid century. Dudley considers these artists to be at the pinnacle of their craft, and their work has strongly influenced his approach, processes and creativity; which has become the focus of his contemporary work, and this collection.
We mark the launch of Dudley's exhibition with an informal conversation with the artist, whose life and experience is filled with fascinating stories and anecdotes.
