Ed Llewellyn is concerned with the politics and poetics of the landscape. For the artist, life is spent between the city and the countryside and thus developing his practice around ideas related to dichotomy of the natural and the manmade. He works with found materials and environments, often reinterpreting them in order to create material sculptural works and photography that aim to question the contemporary social and physical landscape.
Llewellyn is drawn to the land and natural world while succinctly acknowledging the importance of cities and industry within modern culture and thus relation to each other. He prides his working as being a fascination rather than critical of this relationship.
