Project Description

“Through these paintings all that has been lost might now be saved from the destruction of time” -John Mulvany, Introduction for the Aegean Reverie, Works from 2004-2012

The death of Ellis’s wife, Caroline Lee, took Ellis to Greece in her honor. Ellis’s Aegean and Post Aegean series express balance in the visual perception of nature among man made spaces from ancient times. Without an overarching plan, Ellis created work through simplified materials and geometric compositions. The light, airy arrangements of shapes on canvas correlate directly to the work of Piet Mondrian.
