Dudley Edwards, who made his name in the 1960s on the swinging London art scene, will this month be exhibiting at Harvey Nichols in Leeds, for a season of beautiful art for autumn.
Dudley Edwards’ latest collection of prints, based on dancers from Northern Ballet, will be shown throughout the Fourth Floor Restaurant and Bar and are available to buy, with a percentage of profits going to Friends of Alfie Martin; a charity working to improve facilities for new born babies requiring urgent neonatal equipment and transportation facilities.
The series of photographic prints, exploring the form of the dancers at Northern Ballet in rehearsals, will be available to view from the 18 August; with exclusive prints available on Wednesday 13 September when Harvey Nichols will host an auction evening to raise money for the charity.
Edwards career was launched in the 1960s as he became a co-founder of the pop-art collective BEV with fellow artist and visionary Douglas Binder. Together Dudley and Doug were innovators of customised cars, street murals, light shows and painted furniture. Paul McCartney’s iconic piano being an early example.
In 1975 Dudley was commissioned by Yves St Laurent to photograph the Harlem Ballet at The Rockefeller Plaza in New York. His latest venture - to photograph The Northern Ballet dancers in rehearsals for Harvey Nichols has been a natural progression from his earlier works.
Dudley’s collection is on sale at Harvey Nichols from 18 August until mid-November. To find out more, please visit www.harveynichols.com or for more information on the charity please visit www.thefriendsofalfiemartin.co.uk
