The Land of Eden by Edwards Forest

The Land of Eden by Edwards Forest

Of the number of artists who had a significant impact on the work of Edwards, by his own admission, there were two. In the early period, the Edwardian Forest was influenced by illustrator Frank Bellamy, a cartoonist and a recognized comic book master. Later love was the work of illustrator Bruce Pennington.

The artist himself believes that the main criterion in choosing his place in the art world was the attraction from the very childhood “to something strange or bizarre.” At an early age, Les made sketches inspired by some comic book or watching an interesting film. At a later time, he was impressed by the work of Francisco Goya “Saturn, devouring their children” – a bloody scene of devouring his son with all the terrible details.

Wood Edwards three times nominated for the World Fantasy Award, which he finally won, like Edward Miller, in 2008. The artist was also invited to the jury for the awarding of the laureates in 2003. He was an honorary representative of the British Fantasy Artists Association at the 1995 World Science Fiction Forum. Wood Edwards now lives with his wife, Val Edwards in the small town of Essex County, in England. In their magnificent home, the couple lead a closed life.

Edwards plays the guitar, reads a lot and sometimes writes for the soul. The red color in all its shades for Edwards Forest is a universal means of expressing the psychological mood of the picture. Crimson color – the color of anxiety, fear, even death; In combination with orange or pink, it acquires a touch of mysticism, and with yellow it is the hot light of another’s planet. In the picture of Edwards “The Descent of the Earth,” a vile, evil creature crawls out of the earth. The time of dark forces comes at midnight, the master of the dead and evil spirits under the cover of night will bring death and grief to peacefully sleeping people. In this work, the artist also used red color to achieve maximum psychological tension.
