‘Residue’ is a C-Type Print by contemporary artist Ed Burnand. From a limited edition of 100, 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.
‘Residue’ depicts a 1950s-style photograph of an out-of-focus beach in washed out tones, devoid of any life or activity save the rolling of the waves. Over the image, a blue watermark can just be seen, as well as a distressed fragment of paper, a palimpsest of another document, once attached but now only a trace or residue. A beautiful example of found art, there is something profound in Burnand’s print: a thoughtful musing on the materiality of artifice.
