Ed Kluz | Designs for Solitary Buildings
28th November 2020 - 24th 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.
Due to the popularity of the exhibition we have extended the run until the 24th of December. New works will now be published online at 10am on Saturday the 5th and 12th December. Catalogues for the new works will be made available in advance of these launch times.
This exquisite exhibition of new works by Ed Kluz will be launched in several parts over the course of the exhibition and will be made available online and in the windows of Lotte Inch Gallery and Janette Ray Rare Books, at numbers 14 and 8 Bootham, York, respectively.

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. They will also be available to view by appointment from 3rd December onwards.
