Art is a Language!

This language is understood by everybody, you don't need words or education. It also leaves room for interpretation and imagination.

Painting is a discipline of ART.

It is the art of applying pigments on a support e.g. glass, linnen, wood, ceramic, paper, metallic or a wall. Essential for painting is to glue the pigments (color powders) by means of a pasta more or less viscous liquid that allows to stick the pigments to the support. Here the artist needs to know how to combine the different materials to create a sustainable artwork - this is chemistry.

The result is an image that expresses the intension of the author and expresses his perception of the world by his freedom to associate form, colours and expresses his gusto estetico of the society he belongs to. 

Aestethica is the branch of philosophy that explores the nature of arts, beauty, taste, norms and values.

Edwin wants to bring the mystery back by a new way of expressing nude, by tickling the curiosity of the spectator. On one side his work is realistic, but on the other side also abstract. This atmosphere is created by his strong clair-obscur style, even stronger then used by Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Artemisia for example. Where these Old Masters used often 2/3 of light and 1/3 of shadow, Edwin uses 1/3 of light and 2/3 of shadow. The result is that the female landscapes have a chaste and anonymous character, as if the model is dressed in shadows.

Who are those women that Edwin places in the spotlights in his paintings? Who are those elegant and attractive ladies that inspire him? It seems they tell you the naked truth, however, on the other hand they don’t disclose fully who they really are. But why? This contrast makes them mysterious and anonymous, yet famous by being eternalized in a female landscape. It is a very conscious choice Edwin made as a message of his paintings. In this world, the mystery is often destroyed by over-disclosing in an often photographic way (they call this hyper realism). This hyper realism creates to his opinion sterile and even irrealistic paintings. “Why to make paintings photographic? For that purpose cameras and lightfast printing are invented”, Edwin says. It is about the emotion and feelings that the artist expresses that makes paintings art, just like ‘c’est le ton qui fait la musique’ ”.

Vulnerable but confident and filled with self-respect, all the nice and beautiful soft shapes of his ladies, invite you into their world and stories that all have a message to share with you. They seem chaste, however, are they really that shy? Merely dressed by shadows, they come out of their cocoon. In this metamorphosis, they conquer their vulnerability and liberate themselves to show up nude, celebrating their beauty and self-confidence. This beautiful moment is portrayed by Edwin in his female landscapes.
