Ed Fairburn

Ed combines paint with pencil on an array of surfaces, focusing on details that wouldn’t matter to most. The majority of his work is figurative, and so through studies of the human form he explores the physical patterns, regularities and irregularities that occur from person to person. Part of his goal has always been to achieve a true likeness, but in recent years that has become less important. Now spending a considerable amount of time just thinking about his work, as well as actually doing his work. Both ‘concept’ and ‘context’ are a key part of everything he produces, a change brought on by the unusual desire to mail his work, or rather, turn his work into mail.
