Ben Edmunds, *1994, Norwich, UK lives and works in London, UK. As an artist, his practice spans painting and sculpture, and he is the director of Aspirational Equipment Ltd., an artist’s objects company founded in 2019. His practice is deeply rooted in his background as a sailor and windsurfer, and his work focuses on the crossover between these adventure sports, luxury lifestyle pursuits and color field painting. He is interested in the possibilities of abstraction as a transcendental experience, likening it to climbing a mountain or sailing in open water. He questions the assumed anti-utilitarianism of painting, proposing the artwork as a form of equipment.
