Cam Edward’s practice explores hard-edged geometrically constructed compositions that interplay with stylised gestural forms. Self-taught, his work lies at the intersection of both contemporary painting and the digital world. Architectural forms, manipulation of perspective and the underlying impressions of digital media are influences in his work.
Edward utilises colour gradients to define form in a minimally detailed aesthetic. His work emerges through a process of geometrical construction and precise masking. “There is a real sense of satisfaction when I feel it is time to peel back these temporary constructions; the act of revealing exposes the main elements of the work. Structurally, my works can be quite planned, but decisions to do with colour are more process driven; just as a building has temporary scaffolding during construction, so too does my paintings”. In this sense, the performative act of reveal through his masking techniques brings irony to the conceptual space he works within.
