Edwina Longe

In February 2023, artist Edwina Longe decided to up-sticks and relocate from her South London studio to rural Suffolk, where the family have lived in a 16th-century farmhouse since she was two. With a painting practice founded on the flux of the city, her transition to rural East England has offered new perspectives and ignited new routines around her work.

“I’ve always painted – it was my leading subject at school, and I always painted in my free time. I studied a Foundation at Leeds in Fine Art and then curating at Central St Martins. [In] the last two years, I got back into it, inspired by living again with Sahara during the pandemic and being surrounded by so much painting, and since the end of 2022”
