A reinterpretation and rendering of familiar landmarks through the eyes of two Yorkshire artists.
This August, Lotte Inch Gallery is thrilled to welcome back to the city, renowned Yorkshire artist Ed Kluz alongside fellow illustrator Christopher Moss, in their new show, Look at York. The inspiration for this exhibition comes from a shared fascination with Yorkshire’s most famous historic city. It’s rich and dynamic history is recorded in an extraordinary variety of buildings. The exhibition is a collection of works which show York and its built heritage in a new light through the reinterpretation and rendering of familiar landmarks through the eyes of two Yorkshire artists.
The exhibition will comprise of around forty framed works including original egg tempera paintings by Christopher Moss as well as scraper boards, paper collages and prints by Ed Kluz all inspired by the buildings of York. There will also be unframed works available for sale by both artists.
Christopher and Ed have known each other since 1996. Christopher taught Ed A-level art at Richmond School (Yorkshire). He was an important figure in the development of Ed’s ideas and approach to image making. Both artists have continued a strong friendship ever since. Christopher recently embarked on a career as an illustrator and artist, exhibiting his first collection of works as part of the Swaledale Festival. Ed and Christopher continue to inspire each other and this exhibition is a reflection of their friendship and shared love of architecture. Ed Kluz has exhibited his work across the country and received commissions from the V&A, Folio Society, John Murray publishers, Little Toller Books and St Jude’s fabrics.

Ed Kluz is a Yorkshire artist, illustrator and printmaker. Born in 1980 Ed was brought up in the Yorkshire village of Swaledale before studying joining the Winchester School of Art where he studied fine art between 1999-2002. Ed’s work explores historic landscapes, buildings and objects with a contemporary eye. The ideas of early Romanticism, the Picturesque movement and antiquarian representations of topography and architecture underpin his approach to image making. Ed Kluz has exhibited his work across the country and received commissions from the V&A, Folio Society, John Murray publishers, Little Toller Books and St Jude’s fabrics.
Christopher Moss trained at Bath Academy of Art (1985-88) and has a studio in the Yorkshire Dales. He works in diverse media, including silkscreen, woodcut, pen and ink, egg tempera and oils. Christian iconography and the design of early books are crucial influences on his style. Christopher’s current work explores palimpsest- the intriguing way layers of the past can overlap, revealing and concealing in equal measure.
