Ernest Edmonds 1967 – 2017
25 March to 6 May 2017

Ernest Edmonds is a pivotal figure in the development of digital arts practices and his inspiration can be seen globally both through his teaching and his artwork.

In the late 1960s, influenced by American Minimalism and Systems Art in the United Kingdom he began to create work where the development was rule governed. Edmonds was one a group of artists that realised there was a strong link between Systems Art and the ways in which computers worked, and he began use computers in his practice.

The pieces in this exhibition span forty years of Ernest Edmonds’ work as an artist, from the earliest works of concrete poetry, dated 1967, to his current digital works made this year.
