Edwina Broadbent CV
I experiment with paint, relaxing conscious control, in order to release unconscious moves, searching for an equivalent to the raw, elemental beauty of landscape especially West Penwith, Cornwall, where I have lived for the past 5 years.
I explore the fluid movement and relationships of colour, piling up and breaking like a wave, transparencies and opacities of paint like the depths and surfaces of water, rough textures of earth, and the forces of the rectangle, restraining, like ancient rocks, trees and towers braced against the wind.
