Ed Bordett is a painter/printmaker. The subject matters that he deals with are images of urban centers to rural small towns. A big basis of his work is architecture. He paints what he finds to be visually stimulating, and what he finds to make a strong composition and design, rather than focusing on a specific subject matter. The visual stimulation, the strong composition and design are what Bordett considers to make a strong visual presence and give his audiences something to respond to, or what he personally responds to. Some of his work has a nostalgic content to it but that’s not the reason why he’s doing it, rather he is looking towards the composition of shapes that form into a whole statement.
