Hand pulled serigraph prints of movie stars, these images are photographed from a TV screen then converted to screens for printing. That process creates prints that appear both grainy under close exam but as a rich and fully realized photograph at a distance.
Edwards has been photographing current TV images, most notably during the 2008 presidential campaign, however this show’s installation paints a scene of classic blonds and men with guns that have graced movie screens throughout film history.
This is Edwards fifth show at Brandt Gallery. His work questions the process of art making and the line between the act of making art and the actual object created.
