Woods

Ed Miliano

In Spring 2014, Ed Miliano started work on a mural in an 18th century Irish cottage at Joseph Walsh Studios. Undulating, lime-washed walls became the canvas for this 8-week long project. Inspired by the landscape around Fartha, Co Cork, Ed began to sketch the woods he saw. The result is an abstract, 360 degree dry fresco mural of overlapping branches and sticks.

The mural started Miliano on a year-long journey. He created a new language for himself and the result is this new body of work. The work is abstract and based on woods and landscape mostly in Ireland. The references to Cezanne, Picasso and Duchamp are obvious but there are more subtle references to artists like Sol Lewitt and Giuseppe Penone.
