Ashley Joseph Edwards collages stand out from your average run of the mix and match. Yes he has a tendency to mash up vintage images and grand cosmic landscapes like most other artists but he goes further, goes on a merry geometric trip that knows no bounds; blocks of colour, asymmetrical borders, strange conical shapes and whatever else takes his graphical fancy, whatever tangents he can go down. His work is full of possibility.
What’s most encouraging about Edwards work is that he’s so young. He has decades to go and I look forward to seeing where his joyous application of geometry and whimsical use of collage techniques leads him to.
