Tinsel Edwards is a Glasgow-based artist. Predominantly a painter, her practice also includes printmaking, working with found materials, installation and public ‘art stunts’.
Tinsel’s art responds to a wide variety of contemporary social and political issues whilst also referencing her everyday experience. An imaginative and emotional exploration into the seemingly mundane details of domestic life, her paintings offer biting social commentary entwined with humour, emotion and honest autobiographical narrative.
“As the remnants of the YBAs and Thatcher’s children, the ‘me’ generation, turn into cynical, self-absorbed middle aged ATMs and cash cows, it is refreshing to find work that is politically and emotionally engaged.”
