Ernest Edmonds: Artist



I am always looking for something that is challenging to myself. I am more interested in aesthetically difficult- the technically difficult is not so interesting. Ernest Edmonds is a painter and maker of computational generative art . He first used computers in his art practice in 1968 while working as a computer science lecturer at Leicester Polytechnic.

In his interview, he talks about what reflective practice means to him as a painter and gives an example of an unintended outcome that gave rise to changes at the micro level of making a visual artwork.

Ernest Edmonds, artist: for a book on his generative systems art see Franco (2017).
