Martin Edge is an emerging naïve painter, based in Brisbane. As a purveyor of colour, Edge seeks to capture moments from everyday life – inflicting a personal vibrancy into each. Life according to Edge is exhilarating, and this is depicted in his diary like record of events.
Edge’s work is represented in state and national institutional collections including: the Parliament House Art Collection, the Gold Coast University Hospital and Moreton Bay Regional Gallery. In 2009 Edge was a finalist in the Blake Prize for Religious Art, and in 2011 he held a solo exhibition at the Pine Rivers Regional Art Gallery.
