Ed Kluz finds inspiration in the historical objects, buildings, landscape and folklore of Britain and uses them as starting points for vibrant images that explore themes of renewal, reinvention and the passing of time. A multi talented craftsman, he is a printmaker, illustrator, painter, collage artist and designer. Kluz’s detailed and meticulous research into early Renaissance painting has led him to experiment with and reinterpret centuries old traditional techniques. Amongst other materials, he works with egg tempera, gum Arabic, gold leaf on vellum and gessoed oak panels.
