Sharon Ellis
Intimate Terrain
Recommendation by Jody Zellen

Sharon Ellis, “Firefly Fugue,” 2016, alkyd on paper, 27 5/8 x 23 1/2 x 2”

Sharon Ellis is best known for her alkyd paintings depicting abstracted landscapes and seasons with a Surrealist sensibility. In "Intimate Terrain" her works on paper are exhibited for the first time. In these modestly sized pieces she draws upon themes that mingle imaginary dreamscapes and observed nature — presenting the sky, plant-like formations, and undersea worlds — in vivid color against swirling backgrounds. Ellis' process is time consuming as it often takes her a year to complete a painting. So the presentation of these smaller, more intimate works allows us to contemplate a wider array of her images than usual.
