"Dark Times " is an original ink and watercolor painting by professional Artist Brazen Edwards measuring approximately 11" x7" (27.94 cm x 17.78 cm) on watercolour paper. This is part of my series of abstract paintings from my residency in Croatia.
Brazen Edwards is inspired by nature and the flowing movement of water and pigment that intermingles on various substrates. Her handling of paint and surface tension is strikingly accomplished, achieving a rich dichotomy of colour and line that is both intriguing and elusive. Her focus is mainly on an abstracted portrayal of the natural world but she has the ability to capture and create realistic subjects where the viewer is left connected with the intricacies of their environment.
Although she established a reputation with realism early in her career, her subject matter has evolved to a more minimalist construct honing in on the relationship between form and colour. She feels it's important to push herself as an Artist and explore the boundaries - never being afraid to try new and engaging approaches to art.
