“Enlightenment” an oil painting on canvas by UK artist Julie Edwards
‘’Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life.’’ — Pablo Picasso
Julie Edwards on her work “Enlightenment”: “Within natural wonders, this work allows you to avoid the horrors of our uncertain world. I hope that this painting is a visual seduction; the idea of setting you out on a path with risks, that holds both exciting opportunities as well as unknown tensions. I am inviting the viewer into the depths of this painting and hopefully filling them with hope, light and warmth towards humanity.”
“Enlightenment” is part of Julie’s new “Balance” series. Finding a balance between contrast, layers, random and controlled line. Softness and dynamism, realism and abstraction, memory or stories.
