Edwin Rostron

July 2nd – July 23rd 2022

An exhibition of new paintings, drawings and animation from Edwin Rostron, ‘Fragments’ which is the artist’s first solo show, opens’ at dept.con.temporary 2nd July 2022.

These works come out of a time when Edwin was consciously trying to shift his practice into some new territory. The drawings were made quickly and spontaneously, often taking the form of imaginary portraits or abstract compositions. The animation works are mostly very short loops, also made very quickly, utilizing whatever drawings or other materials that were to hand, and usually shot on a phone in between other activities. These new paintings have developed out of this period of experimentation, and mark the beginnings of a new direction in Edwin’s practice.

Edwin Rostron is an artist based in London, His films have been shown at film festivals such as Ann Arbor Film Festival, onedotzero, LSFF and Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation. In 2013 he founded Edge of Frame, a blog and screening series focusing on experimental animation, holding events at BFI Southbank, Barbican, Close-Up and Whitechapel Gallery.
