Gordon Ellis-Brown United Kingdom Mix Media

Acrylic, pigment, mixed media on Arches Aquarelle. 40 x 90 cm.

A visual discourse covering aspects of modern day

space exploration, ancient marks of indigenous

people and a play on our relationship with the

universe.

 

Through Ellis-Brown’s work in Final Frontier, we

see connections between deities, transfixions with

ancient gods and a modern day idealism. With his

treatment of aligning varying mediums of paint,

pigments, metallics and photography, his work

reveals parallels between astronauts and the early

pioneers who discovered and claimed new lands.

The humour that creeps into his work, lays bare

a fragility and precociousness forever evident in

human endeavour.
