Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce the 24th edition of Artist of the Day. The two week exhibition programme is curated by leading contemporary artists, each selecting an artist for a one day solo show. Past selectors have included Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Maggi Hambling, and Cornelia Parker.
This year, Charlotte Edey is selected by Juno Calypso.
Softly surreal, Charlotte Edey’s work explores the themes of identity and balance within fluid and impossible spaces. Drawing on afrofuturism, modernist architecture and vastly arid landscapes, the scenes are punctuated with touches of lush, organic idyll and miniature figures. Across her drawings and large-scale tapestry work, the use of scale and visual contrasts explore the delicate nature of equilibrium.
Edey will be exhibiting a series of drawings, art prints and tapestry works, with two new tapestries created for the show.
