Ed Kluz | Designs for Solitary Buildings

28th November 2020 - 12th December 2020

An Online Exhibition of New Works

Architectural pattern books and ephemeral structures of the 18th century have inspired this series of new works by Ed Kluz, which we are delighted to be hosting online this winter.Created over the past few months during a period of retreat, these smaller-scale, mixed media drawings on gesso, depict imagined places and singular buildings.

Part I of the exhibition will be made available for sale online on Saturday 28th November at 10am.

In the meantime, view the catalogue here

Part II will be published online on Saturday 5th December at 10am.

Kluz’s work explores perceptions of the past through the reimagining of historic landscapes, buildings and objects. Antiquarianism and a curiosity for the obscure underpin his ideas. The visual language of his pieces is informed by 17th and 18th century topographical prints, early photography and cinema. ​

Ed was born in 1980 and grew up in Swaledale, North Yorkshire. He studied fine art at the Winchester School of Art between 1999 - 2002.​

His work is held in a number of public collections including the V&A and York City Art Gallery.


The works will be available to view in the window of the Gallery and at Janette Ray Rare Books, at 8 Bootham. Covid-19 restrictions permitting, they will also be available to view by appointment from 3rd December onwards.

Please do contact us if you want any information about any of the works.
