OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY FEBRUARY 5, 2010
David Ellis's newest exhibition, Mola Salsa explores process with 15 new works on paper and a new motion painting. Reflecting on images from his childhood in rural North Carolina, David draws animals, trees, clouds and images dear to him. For this exhibition Ellis engages the idea of the animal spirit to depict his ideas of transformation. Ellis also makes imagery derived from plumes of smoke and steam originally inspired by witnessing an active volcano. These linear works he calls "flow" also describes rivers, both above and below the surface. This language embodies his belief that no condition is permanent.
