In an exhibition that stems from the development time that an Arts Council of Wales Creative Wales Awards afforded the artist, Sean Edwards practice mines the mundane and often overlookedfor its sculptural potential.

Edwards, who won the Gold Medal for Fine Art at the National Eisteddfod this year for his moving image homage to a dying shopping centre, Maelfa. The work of Sean Edwards examines the sculptural potential of the everyday. While it responds to his engagement with the world at large, many of his pieces make use of remnants of previous activities as starting point and reflect time spent in the context of his studio.

His found or made objects, as well as his drawings, photographs and clippings, invite the response of the audience and undermine the idea of the exhibition space as a place solely for fully realised artworks.
