Tim Edwards’ new body of work explores how the use of line can at once define, describe, and distort our perception of form in two and three- dimensional space. A child of the 70’s and 80’s media culture, Edwards has a deep-seeded interest in how we understand, and consume images and graphics in our modern lives. He is also a passionate drawer, filling his sketchbooks with line drawings of everyday objects, patterns, and shapes. Edwards’ passion for illustration and graphics has long been at the core of his sculptural work in glass, but this most recent body of work precisely highlights how blown glass and drawing can work together to define and contort both form and our perception of it
Originally trained in ceramics, Edwards has devoted himself to glass art since 1997. From 1992 to 1996, he served as the Associate Designer of ceramics and glass at the Jam Factory in Adelaide, AU. In addition to Traver Gallery, Edwards’ work has been exhibited at SOFA Chicago, The Institute of Science and Arts in Venice, Italy, The Mitsukoshi International Glass Art Festival in Taiwan, and many more internationally known institutions. In 2006 Edwards was the recipient of the prestigious Rakow Commission from the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
