The annual ArtGemini Prize is a celebration of international contemporary art for emerging and estalished artists around the world.
Ellie’s winning work ‘Stars 8’ (pictured above) is part of her recent ‘Stars’ series, in which she explores her desire to balance a relationship with the wild places of her childhood and a sense of disconnection from the natural world.
The work is a response to the experience of gazing at landscapes as a tourist, while living in urban or semi-urban areas, which often alienates viewers from the scene in front of them.
‘Stars’ attempts to address both the mystery and material sensuality of our landscapes and interposes photographs of ancient forests with images of the Milky Way, Omega Centauri, the Norma Galaxy and Embryonic stars in the Nebula NGC 346.
The ArtGemini Prize is showing this month at the Singapore Art Fair, where Ellie has been selected to exhibit alongside two other artists from the 2014 Shortlist, Jaykoe and Adrian Scicluna.
The Singapore Art Fair runs from Thursday 27 – Sunday 30 November 2014 at The Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, Suntec City, Singapore.
The ArtGemini Prize can be found at Booth D10, so we hope that any of our readers who are in town will stop by to take a look!
