Ed Kluz's work focusses on perceptions of the past through the reimagining of historic landscapes, buildings and objects. These concerns are explored through the media of painting, drawing, printmaking and site-specific installation.

 

The visual language of his work is underpinned by a curiosity for the obscure. He draws inspiration from 17th, 18th and 19th century topographical and architectural representation, early photography, film and theatre. 

 

Between 1999-2002 he studied fine art at the Winchester School of Art.
