From her earliest work of social commentary, which began in London in
the 1970’s with lively paintings of the vibrant world she inhabited,
Edwina showed her own distinctive style, which readily translated into
other materials. Most notable of her bronzes is Christa, a female Christ figure on the cross, created in 1975. After being on display in numerous churches, Christa was installed at
Easter 1984 in New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The media
coverage created a worldwide furor and she experienced the double-edged
sword of public debate, as both praise and outrage flooded in.
During the last 30 years Edwina has created art of international acclaim that includes sculpture, paintings, collage and works on paper. Her work has reached a wide audience far beyond the realm of the private collector. Early in her career, for the 1979 United Nations’ Year of the Child, she created three monumental sculptures, which are now installed at UN centers in New York, Geneva and Vienna. A decade later, she used dismantled sections of the Berlin Wall to create an extraordinary sculpture, Breakthrough, now permanently sited at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, where Winston Churchill gave his historic “Iron Curtain” speech.
Today her works are mainly large-scale metal sculptures which include her iconic Eve’s Apple and her Sunflower Woman, commissioned by Henry Buhl for his celebrated Sunflower Collection.
