White Moose represented artist Edward Crumpton will be exhibiting a selection of new work in upcoming group exhibition Ten at White Moose. This exhibition comes almost two years since Edward last exhibited with us in October/November 2013 with his very popular Mariners Way project.

Ten will reunite Edward with two other Devon born artists – Hester Berry and Peter Kettle, ten years after leaving West Buckland School in 2005. Since then, they have all forged successful careers – studying, travelling and exhibiting across the UK; places which have contributed to their creative identities.

Edward’s paintings in the exhibition take Lundy Island as their subject, as part of his new project to visit twelve islands off the British Isles. This work peals back the layers of history that humans have left on the landscape revealing its social, geological and political past in the form of ink and oil paintings.

The exhibition will be at White Moose from 8 August – 26 September with an ‘In Conversation’ with Hester, Edward & Peter on 12 August from 7 pm. The three artists will be discussing how their work has developed since leaving West Buckland and the similarities and differences between their work today.  More info here
