This is an exhibition in the artist's house and studio. The work is predominantly abstract made during and since the lockdown. The paintings are on canvas, linen and paper using oil, acrylic and watercolour paint and charcoal. Some prints and drawings will also be shown. Belinda Ellis studied Fine Art in London in the 1970s and has continued painting ever since. In 1989 she moved to Bloxham in North Oxfordshire.
Paintings by Belinda Ellis can be described as a synthesis of the internal and external, colour relationships seen and imagined. The ideas are visual and the work communicates like music in a non-verbal way reflecting and evoking, not copying, nature. There is a symbiotic relationship between differing or opposing elements such as accident and order, translucence and opaqueness, stillness and energy. This creates a tension. Her practise is a continuing process, the paintings being offshoots of that process, each one bringing and feeding ideas for others. At the start the outcome is unknown as the process is a dialogue between the artist and the work.
