LOS ANGELES, CA.- Academy Award winning filmmaker Blake Edwards' artwork will be shown at Leslie Sacks Fine Art in Brentwood from June 8 through June 26, 2010. This exhibition, entitled Lenses, will feature a selection of the artist's paintings, drawings and sculptures. A portion of the proceeds from the show will benefit Operation USA's Haitian Quake Relief Fund.

Edwards is internationally recognized for his work as a consummate filmmaker whose masterpieces include Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Pink Panther,10, Days of Wine and Roses, Victor Victoria, and the hysterical critique of Hollywood, S.O.B., to mention but a few of his forty- seven feature films.

It’s no surprise that Edwards has 'the eye' but those not familiar with his artwork will be amazed by his remarkable facility as a painter and sculptor. This being said, art is about more than mere facility. Blake Edwards is fascinated by every aspect of visual experience and this fascination is at the heart of his work, which is concerned with different ways of seeing and representing visual reality.

Much of Edwards’ art work is abstract and geometric, and looks as though he's rendering reality through complex lenses while revealing the geometry and functions of the lenses themselves. This observation is not to imply that Edwards consciously intends this optical metaphor, but real art reveals the artist and Blake Edwards consistently expresses that which he is and that which he loves, and he's certainly had a long and passionate love affair with the lens.

“Blake Edwards shares his passion for art with his wife and muse, Julie Andrews” stated operation USA founder Richard Walden. “These two artists are as passionate about humanistic concerns as they are about art. They have long been involved with Operation USA, which began flying emergency relief missions in 1979 to disaster stricken areas around the world and in the United States. This exhibition will benefit Operation USA's ongoing effort to bring relief to the quake stricken people of Haiti.”
