Jim Edwards’ nightscape paintings are alive with a warmth that represents the vital life of a city at night. Through the layering of paint, the images take on a vibrancy that glows from the canvas. In a new series of works for The Late Shows, Jim is further exploring this concept of glowing, but applying this narrative to the natural environment. When elements of humanity become so embedded within nature, they are accepted as part of the environment, creating a magical quality that seems greater than the sum of its parts. Jim is hoping to capture the energy of these places, from the hauntingly beautiful Hadrian’s Wall, to the mysterious Shoe Trees of Heaton.
