MAKE A GRASP AND DENT IT
Elly will showcase a variety of traditional oil painting genres from the figurative and portraiture to the still life. The exhibition depicts the artists interest in a varietal depiction of concepts, artistic practice and the use of atelier oil painting technique. The works are predominantly derived from memories or moments drawn from still life and life drawing. The paintings describe a memory or observation. Elements of abstraction and expressionism are present but they are predominantly governed by the developed notions of realism which is to maintain an accessibility and empathy for the viewer; a homage to the moment depicted and the derived relationship of the human condition expressed through art.
