‘Midnight in a Perfect World 2’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Ed Burnand. From a limited edition of 5, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Ed Burnand is a contemporary artist, creating mixed media originals and limited edition prints. At the heart of his practice, Burnand explores the deeply human and personal in the marking of the canvas, and the result is a compelling fusion of abstract-meets-figurative.
‘Midnight in a Perfect World 2’ depicts a black and white photograph of a suburban vista, three brutalist-style buildings crouched amidst the asphalt. Burnand has augmented the print with a hand spray-painted background, washing the image with otherworldly shades of colour, marbled together in a way that’s reminiscent of the spectral Northern Lights.
The print captures a snapshot of a once-utopian architecture, emptying the image of any social judgement or sense of self, and replacing these elements with swathes of colour, for a beautiful and thoughtful cohesion of sociality and aesthetics.
