Ben Edge is a British painter based in London. His works depicts obscure traditions which are still enacted today; the Burryman of South Queensferry, or the Horn Dancers of Abbots Bromley, where ritualized offerings and participatory struggles (Flaming Tar Barrels of Ottery St Mary, Devon or The Britannia Coco-nut Dancers or Nutters of Bacup, Lancashire) portray meaningful community narratives. Ben composes his imagery into symmetrical tableaux of realist paintwork, displaying the eccentric images as though in a symbolic order befitting a portable religious Icon.
