2007 Crazy 8 Art > Edward Master

In these oil paintings and works on paper, artist Edward Master references architectural and natural motifs, along with the traditional and decorative arts of many cultures, and point to the pictorial graphic renditions of preliterate societies.

In the large scale paper constructions, the artist paints and draws intricately ornamented designs and shapes on paper, then cuts and assembles them into complex tapestries of pattern and structure. With embroidery thread stitched joints, and complexly shaped edges, these two-dimensional pieces convey an astounding multidimensional surface. The work switches rapidly from seeming vast vistas and aerial views to depictions of the tiniest decorative fringe.

Astounding in their complexity and extremely stimulating to the eye, Master's work is at once beautiful and rich.
