A Sweeping Breath Sung is a tangible projection of something intangible. It focuses on the accessibility of the sacred, and by using natural materials and a symbol of a shadowed star suspended in time, it aspires to bring light to the unseen divinity of the world around us.
Zane Edwards is an emerging artist working on Gadigal Land, completing his study at the National Art School. While practising in the discipline of ceramics, Edwards aims to explore the ritualistic nature of ‘body’, divine psyche and the forever moving. Through forms of text, pictorial signs and semiotic ciphers, Edwards aims to use these historical and cultural symbols to explore the impermanent and the everlasting. Exercising the inquisition of the Ether, and how it is present in the mortality of subjects regarding friendship, ritual, gratitude and spirit. Edwards' fondness of multi-disciplinary work allows himself to express these ideas to viewers in innocence, allowing them access into an unseen of their own.
