Ed Templeton / The Cemetary of Reason / S.M.A.K Museum / Ghent, Belgium / April 2010

The American painter, drawing artist and photographer Ed Templeton (°1972) tells the story of his life, a story that also makes comments on the society in which he lives. Templeton presents his images free from hierarchy, focusing on the world of punk and skateboarding, friends, family, himself and his wife… From intimately to far outside, he effortlessly couples autobiographical fragments with a universal imagery. The result is an exhibition which presents itself as ‘a story’, fed and corroborated by photographs, paintings and sketches that roam through the spaces, free from hierarchy.
