Ellie Young Metal As?  

Nov 22nd 2017 to Jan 28th 2018

Colour carbon on Metal surfaces

Ellie explores the inherent abstraction of the real world. With these works, simultaneously captured the bold, graphic qualities of her subject and their nuances of texture and tonality. The images appear both as powerful, gestural forms from a distance, and as rich topographies with minute details and subtlety up close. The simple still life works introduce a tension between the real and the abstract.

Offical Opening 26th Nov 4.30pm to 6.30 pm Opening speech by Jerry Spagnoli 4.30pm
