Edward May’s artistic practise explores the contemporary human experience whilst simultaneously making an inquiry into Art. His work is idiosyncratic and spans a wide a wide range of mediums.
Edward is interested in archiving, looking more closely at what already exists, the aesthetic and physical properties of colour, shape, line and form, and how Art can be analysed and performed as temporal activity.
Life in the Anthropocene epoch explores contemporary human experience through a survey of the macro events and human behaviours in the world today. It asks a question: can Art be the presentation of objective, scientific and rational information whilst simultaneously being a subjective, irrational, personal, sensory, non-visual, non-physical and social experience?
Writing plays a central role in Edward's practice.
Edward is the director of Circle Triangle Square, an art platform for talented emerging artists.
