In This Issue

EDITOR’S NOTE

McLean Edwards said to writer Saskia Beudel, as they spoke in his studio, ‘We should be fearsome, us artists and writers. People should tremble when we enter the room.’ Few painters can claim to be an inspiration to their generation as Edwards can.

This issue, which features Edwards on the cover, marks the first year since Artist Profile established itself as an independent entity, and it is our thirteenth year as a magazine devoted to revealing the stories behind visual artists and their art.

Our new Artist Profile team has been listening to your comments on how to improve both the print magazine and our digital platforms.

Independence has meant we can provide in-depth articles on the visual arts that last beyond a ‘sound bite’.

We have redesigned the print edition of the magazine, and improved the quality of the paper and printing process. An extra sixteen pages were added to the print format to highlight more artists’ stories. We are making it easier to find Artist Profile by increasing our print run and expanding the outlets to which we distribute this magazine.

If this is the first time you’ve seen the magazine, we hope you will take up a subscription. The support we receive from subscriptions, together with income from our advertisers and casual sales, enables us to resource our writers and photographers both locally and internationally, and through them bring to our readers an independent view of some of the most exciting artists working today.
