Ellie Malin is a Melbourne based artist working predominantly in relief woodblock printing and experimenting in painting, installations and collaborative projects. Her bold, visceral artworks reflect an intuitive approach to image making where colours and form construct the landscape. Her artworks are inspired by a love for travel, memories, and also from the most meaningful to the insignificant moments in life, in all their beauty.
“An image’s origins may begin as something quite recognisable as I slowly take on a process of deconstructing it into pure simplified shapes and colour. In effect I’m pulling things apart in order to simplify their appearance.”
‘Electric Earth’ is an exhibition of vibrant woodblock prints exploring abstract images through colour, texture and form laid out in a series of contrasting configurations. Flashes of intense solferino and vermilion tones are balanced out with soft greys and pastels. Deep Prussian blue and mossy greens draw in a world of nature while circles, arches and squares glint towards timeless places.
Electric Earth runs 14 September – 7 October.
