'Enigmas and ironies abound in the work of Mark Edwards. It is a joy to lose yourself down labyrinthine pathways of possible narrative; suited figures, forest, snow and trains to unknown destinations. It is an equal delight to marvel at Edwards’ remarkable techniques, all honed to make his paintings vibrate with colour, resolve in composition and twang with tension.'
Tony Davidson, Kilmorack Gallery Director

Edwards began his current series of surrealist paintings, ‘The White Wood,’ in 2007. Throughout his career he has painted and illustrated book covers including works by Kingsley Amis, Beryl Bainbridge, Sue Townsend, Michael Morpurgo, and Philip Pullman.


Mark Edwards was born in London where he studied art during the 1960’s. In 1974 he relocated to the far North of Scotland where he now lives and works.
