About the Series
In this series Ellis explores the boundaries between the naturally occurring and the manmade by augmenting plants and flowers with paint, ink and other means. Lighting and perspective further alienate the subjects from their origin whilst blending the two worlds more seamlessly together. The result is a series of still lifes that sometimes feel instinctive and other times abstract and constructed. ‘Ambiguity’ is Ellis’ first big and ongoing photo project.
