May 13 – June 23, 2023 / Charlie Edmistion LOST AND FOUND NEU


Charlie Edmistion

Edmiston’s first solo exhibition in Germany, presents a new body of work produced
specifically to exist in harmony with the unique architectural environment of PERG. This
series continues the artist’s dialogue between the compositional conventions of painting
and the material presence of relief sculpture.

While preparing a new body of work, the artist often enters a conceptualization phase that
is chaotic and absent of direction. Lost and Found, references techniques, shapes and
material in Edmiston’s practice that were once abandoned for newer ideas or lost in the
studio archives. Later to be rediscovered and implemented for this exhibition, the title
also represents a moment of clarity when the visual tone was established and the
production of artwork commenced.

Whether dwelling in organized containment or testing the freedom of unbound forms,
Edmiston’s shapes and colors communicate with their counterparts found on display
within the gallery space. They are never exact duplicates, but do evoke a sense of
connection and continuity of intention. In essence, visual echoes, functioning in a way
similar to musical motifs, unifying the overall collection.
