Introducing Lee Edwards

135 artists are taking part in "Inside Job" which takes place on the 7th and 8th of April on Level 6 of Tate Modern. Over the next few weeks The Rebel Magazine will be chatting to some of the Tate staff who are showing their artwork. Today it's the turn of Lee Edwards
Q) Where did you grow up and what kind of education did you receive? "I grew up in Lambeth, south London. My three art teachers at Secondary School and Sixth Form were the best art tutors I ever had. Any training for the art world was due to them." Q) How long have you been working at the Tate and what's the best show you've seen there? On and off just over one year part time. Probably 'Holbein in England' in 2006, or 'British Folk Art' in 2014.
Q) What can you tell me about the work you're exhibiting in the Tate Modern show? "I strive to do the humble justice. Here, a detailed painting of moss is given prominence."
Q) How can people find out more about your work - do you have a website or do Instagram? Instagram: @leeedwardsart Q) Is there anything you have to declare / do you have a favourite quote, thought or joke you'd care to share? "Look closer".
"Inside Job": An exhibition of art by Tate Staff will take place on Level 6 of the Blavatnik Building of Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG
