Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Oil on canvas, 20" x 30".
High quality materials.
Deeply intrigued by dreaming and the human psyche, Ella explores the parallels between conscious and subconscious mind-states through a series of abstract paintings.
The paintings invite the viewer to envision subjects within the imagery to psychoanalytically explore how the imagination plays role to the individual’s perception. Bold, expressive and gestural markings synchronize in a sweep of tonal blends to create pseudo-surreal scapes.
Ella considers her paintings as dream lands. When we sleep, we are submerged in an environment created and perceived simultaneously by our own minds. Our brains are a virtual reality system, providing us with sensory stimuli based on our own experiences, emotions and the personality’s characteristics. As dreaming transports us from one state of mind to another, U(dys)topia provides a parallel platform.
