Julie Ellis
Serendipity 2 – 17 November 2018

Award winning artist Julie Ellis continues to evolve her skill in producing paintings which are instantly recognisable.

Her ethereal land and seascapes, dominated by vast atmospheric skies, create ambiguous, complex compositions which invite the viewer to bring their own private narrative to each canvas.

Strong, intuitive marks and a calm, painterly perspective, achieved through colour and tone, suggest a fleeting sense of memory and familiar sense of belonging which in reality does not exist in time or place.

In this new stunning exhibition, which features oil on panel paintings as well as works on paper, each measured mark, each thoughtful stroke, leads to the next, and the next, creating a path of discovery – much like Julie’s own artistic journey.
