ARTIST STATEMENT: -
Tim Ellis paintings and installations investigate the historical and mythological narratives of belief systems. His ideas emerge from a beings primeval desire to belong to something greater than ones self. The Characters that are played out in his works are descendants from humanities rich past, each one a universal metaphor that transcend cultural history. Whether gathered to celebrate a solstice, equinox or a religious ritual, the same metaphors appear encapsulated in the temporal cycles of our world.
