Statement:

Ellis states, "My paintings are a combination of mixed media works that involve encaustic, oil, acrylic and collage elements. Texture, surface treatments and color are very important aspects of my work in order for each painting to have a very profound and compelling presence.

I tend to create bodies of work by doing a series of paintings with the same concept running through each piece. Though consistent in my approach, this allows me to explore different avenues for the work and to come to different forks in the road as the piece is developing. This inevitably happens by choice, chance and circumstance. As the artist making the work, the unpredictability and potential sense of discovery is very exciting and one of the main reasons why I do what I do.

My ultimate goal is to create a compelling work of abstract art that engages the viewer, is endlessly absorbing and fosters a meaningful dialogue."
