Hilary Ellis

Hilary Ellis  has a fascinating method of working; using repetition and ritual to create intricate, almost calligraphic works. They never have an outcome in mind- she says her works are “a futile quest for regularity and the setting up of simple systems and processes in an attempt to impose order upon chaos.”

They have a look of Paul Klee or Mark Tobey about them, with  delicate gestural marks that take the pen for a walk, but the use of stitching and mixed media give these paintings a unique feel. I really like these. See below for some of my favourites.
