Artist Statement

Ambitious contemporary audio-visual artist, with a keen eye for capturing the intangible, such as frequencies of sound, Edgar applies experimental methods to create interactive, innovative and unique art.

By provoking emotions, resurgence the viewer is presented with an opportunity to consider the human state through our immediate environment.

Edgar specialises in film and photography, capturing loneliness as her primary theme, exploration has developed from alienation to power loneliness in the arts.

Recent work has included regionally exhibited installation work, independent research and local community engaged projects.

Diversity, positivity, creativity and empowering others is important to how Edgar works.

Edgar is proactive to collaborate, enthusiastic to share and develop ideas that can be adapted to all spaces.
