In the Studio
I’ve been working on small scale studies recently. Acrylic on paper mounted to board, 210m x 297mm (A4) – the last of the supplies I brought back from Japan. If you’re interested in purchasing one of these pieces get in touch via my info page.
Going on trips
Journeys have been on my mind recently, and it reminded me of a trip I took to Kyoto for the first time way back. At one of the shrines I was encouraged to buy some of the lucky charms (お守り) from the stall in the gardens. There were literally dozens to choose from – charms that helped to earn more money, others that kept you safe on the road etc. I’m not sure if there was one for journeys but this painting – Ryokou Omamori (or is it Tabi Omamori?), is my lucky charm for just such an occasion. I don’t think you’ll find a charm quite like this one there.
Acrylic on wood panel, 140mm x 180mm

Working on a big old ink painting. Not sure how this one will turn out. It’s been about a year since I worked with ink on paper and I’m a bit rusty. It’s great for grads though
From the vault! This selection of works were made between 2012 and 2013 and I’m making them available for purchase. All are A4, watercolour and pencil on Japanese Muse 300gsm paper. The last of my smaller works made during my 10 years in Japan. All enquiries welcome at info(at)sean-edward.com.au

2014 was a funny year. In late December I left Japan and came back to Australia – the last month of my decade abroad punctuated with a month of intense activity including 2 small private exhibitions, several last minute projects, farewell parties and the insanity of moving house internationally.
But, with all the work required to make the huge move back to Australia last year, I didn’t have nearly as much time as I would have liked for solid art practice.
That said, 2015 is shaping up to be very different already. In the next month, I’ll be back in the studio working on new stuff and there’s an interesting project with a toy maker in Japan on the boil – but more on that soon!
