Edwards’ amusing and poignant observations can be seen in this painting, TRIAGE, completed in the summer of 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. TRIAGE is a patchwork collage of fashionable images from direct mailings and gallery invitations. Painterly flourishes and colorful geometric shapes deliberately obscure the images. Amid this visual cacophony, a simple white square in the middle of the piece states the obvious; “TOO MUCH MONEY IN TOO FEW HANDS.” TRIAGE demonstrates the contrast between public relations and creative resolve, pushing the boundaries between branding and awareness.
