E9: 'The Lost House Revisited' with Ed Kluz

Saturday 5 Oct 2019

7.30pm; Richmond Town Hall, DL10 4QL; tickets £7 each; FairTrade Bar;  bookstall; disabled access.

Richmond-born artist, Ed Kluz, has a fascination for the sites of lost buildings and the architecture of once-celebrated grand houses. Studying old engravings, plans and descriptions to build a mental picture of a house, he conjures up vanished buildings in all their pomp and, rather than setting them in re-created landscapes, illuminates them with theatrical lighting.


Hear how Ed achieves this and creates stunning images of magnificent, bold and grandiose buildings of the past.
