Edgelands presents the work of six painters who explore and document the wastelands and neglected environs to be found on the margins of urban living. Housing estates, out-of-town retail parks and industrial areas are the great ‘unnamed and ignored landscapes…places where our slipstream has created a zone of inattention’*.
