CNB Gallery and director Rebecca Lidert are delighted to present the first solo exhibition of London-based artist Ben Edge.

Ben Edge’s paintings investigate and celebrate the extraordinary lives of ordinary people. Within each of his portraits he presents the viewer with a critical and psychological insight into a unique human story, through recurring themes such as otherness, masculinity and the artistic impulse. In this body of work, Edge depicts outsider artists, musicians, circus performers, climbers, Arctic explorers, fighters and poets, many of whom live beyond generally accepted social and cultural norms.
