Beverley Art Gallery


Edgelands’ was a name dreamt up some 20 years ago to describe aspects of the changing face of Britain.

With its evocative account of a journey around the M25, London Orbital; written by Iain Sinclair, this was perhaps the first literary attempt to capture the essence of the idea.

For Paul Farley and Michael Symmon-Roberts, authors of the ook ‘Edgelands’, these spaces were ‘...places where our slipstream has created a zone of inattention’ and yet places where all manner of interest and beauty thrive.

The paintings in this exhibition are by artists from the recently formed Contemporary British Painting group. In the work of Day Bowman, Dan Coombs, Marguerite Horner, Barbara Howey, Lee Maelzer and Sean Williams, we encounter six visions of the modern world we inhabit; here are
works that provide both celebration and social comment on the discarded margins of urban living.
