June 29 – July 30
NC artist Sterling Edwards employs stylized shapes, bold lights and darks, and dramatic color rhythms to build his sought after abstract expressionist paintings. His expressive calligraphy and splattering are signature techniques. Intuitive Experience features new works in acrylic and watercolor.
I often refer to my abstracted paintings as an intuitive and spontaneous artistic statement. They’re a vision on display composed of energetic and expressive brushwork in some areas that are complemented with subtleties in other areas.
They’re a division of space into irregular and asymmetric design and a juxtaposition of positive and negative space. These are accentuated with hard and soft edges, alluring and interesting textures, and highlighted with calligraphy and expressive colors. What I demand from one of my abstracted paintings is that it truly is a spontaneous and intuitive artistic statement.
