Eden has been working in collaboration with her father Andrew for almost ten years. He is the celebrated artist and film-maker that made Gallivant, a feature-length experimental road-movie that starred Eden and her great-grandmother Gladys.
In 2011 he presented (Louyre – This Our Still Life) to wide acclaim at the Venice Film Festival and at cinemas throughout the UK. The film is a portrait of Eden and her mother Leila as seen through the eyes of the Pyrenean landscape. The project was also presented as a series of installations and exhibitions at the ICA in Geneva and The South Gallery, Brighton University, which featured drawings and paintings by Eden.
An interim exhibition of her work in 2012 at blackShed Gallery in Robertsbridge was a sell out success and provided huge encouragement for Eden to develop her practice.
My Work His Words (Again) has grown out of a deep relationship between father and daughter and Eden’s remarkable artistic abilities. Eden has been buoyed by Project Artworks (an artist led local organisation that works with people who have complex needs) throughout her career and would like to thank them for their ongoing support.
