Edwina Bridgeman is an artist whose work is created from found objects and found timbers. Her figurative work tells stories, often celebrating small, overlooked moments.
IMAGINE will be on show at the Bishop`s Palace, Wells; a fitting backdrop for Edwina's appealing work and the exhibition is promoted by the Air Gallery, Wells.
Recently Edwina has been looking at Imagination with a group of key stage 2 children and asking the question; where would we be without it? Some of the work has been made as a response to this question. Edwinas work and her use of materials invite the audience to use their imagination and make the leap from seeing, what is a broom, but has become a landscape, or a twig that has become a raven feeding Elijah in the desert.
This is Edwinas first exhibition in Wells and follows on from her sell out show Shelter at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath last spring and her national tour Orchard which was seen locally at the Glastonbury Rural Life Museum in 2009.
Edwinas work has been described as having a wise innocence. There is a spiritual aspect to the work and the ecclesiastical setting of the Bishop`s Palace has inspired Edwina to look again at some of her earlier subjects, so expect to see Jonah and a wooden whale, Adam and Eve in a fantastical Paradise and a whole host of Angels.
