Born in Vancouver, Wade has travelled the country, painting and showing his work in Newfoundland, Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. Self-taught but inspired by artists as diverse as da Vinci, Monet, and Wilson Bickford, his work explores abstract and impressionist themes with constantly shifting and evolving techniques as suits the moment and subject. A prolific creator, Wade aims to examine every vantage offered by human variation.
Wade Edwards Artistís Statement:
Having come to the canvas later in my life than many, I have developed my own techniques as I go. While respecting formal structures and approaches, I feel most comfortable letting my brushes be my eyes and throwing myself whole into the work. A day where I donít pour myself onto the canvas is now unimaginable for me. I look forward to exploring new forms and techniques as opportunities present are sparked by chance or spurred by the muses.
