“Roll up, roll up!” is a series of 6 unique improvisations from Chris Edwick that have found a source of inspiration in the theme of the circus. Essential elements of the composition have been allowed to move freely and playfully as in a kaleidoscope echoing the performers in a great circus show.
“At the heart of all my painting is a love of the emotionally heightened moments of experience when life seems rich and vivid. Those childhood visits to the circus are a perfect point of reference. “Dumbo”, “The Greatest Show on Earth” or more recently, the Beatles inspired “Love” by the Cirque De Soleil all inspire but the Rolling Stones “Rock and Roll Circus” is a personal favourite that outshines the others. Mick Jagger gives one of his most provocative performances ever, strutting and posing with debonair arrogance and a commanding erotic sensuality. Its a key ambition of mine to try to achieve something of that in all my painting, so "Roll up, roll up!"
