This show highlights an artist’s journey for the last 9 months. Coinciding with a gestational period of a human life, Ellen investigated the conceptual and visual components that outline all the parts of who we think we are and where truth is held. The works of art presented are influenced by personal journey to the here and now, the vibrations of the collective, and the compulsive narrative.
Each work of art pays homage to different part of Herstory. They honor process, new beginnings and above all the media in which her hands wanted to work. They are the products of challenging the sources of thinking (what is suppose to be and what is) and trusting the feelings within. This exhibition will embrace awareness and honor the influences and intuitive source from which it came/ when creation took place.
