Edwin Hedge – Born 1950 – 2016

Born in Ghent, Edwin Hedge grew up in Highgate, North London, and graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art taught by Sir Anthony Blunt . Much of his life has been spent painting abroad, including the U.S., and several years spent in Africa (Malawi & Kenya), Russia, Malaysia and Egypt.

The main influence on his art has been platonic thought, as expressed in the “uncreated light” of icon painting. He is seen as an artist in the English mystical tradition of Blake, Palmer, Stanley Spencer, Cecil Collins and Burn Jones

His pictures are built up carefully, using egg tempera under painting overlaid with many glazes and scumbles.
