Tom Ellis

Episodic Scenes of Fortune and Woe

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

For this exhibition Ellis has transformed the usually open-plan spaces of the ground floor gallery into an improvised, undulating and disorientating simulacrum of a contemporary white cube space. Into this makeshift, fabric space, Ellis has then placed paintings, some edited with marker pen, that also seem to approach their straightforwardly contemporary status with a similarly sceptical sense of ambivalence. As if to further undermine the normal certainties of gallery, neutral display wall and the venerated art object Ellis has then proceeded to intersperse his paintings with prints that have arbitrarily applied patches of high resolution amid otherwise visibly pixelated renderings of the original paintings - what he refers to as 'high-and-low-quality prints'.
