Contemporary Painting, 'Wait for Me,' Poppy Ellis
Contemporary Painting, 'Wait for Me,' by British artist Poppy Ellis.
Fantastic composition from Ellis, the oval table at an unnatural angle with the domestic scene behind it. Collaged apples crowd a blue plate, a Sunderland lustre ware cup sits on a Gaugin book, the open French fan says 'wait for me.'
Lovely Matisse portrait over the mantelpiece.
About the Artist
Poppy Ellis is a painter, she lives on the edge of the English Channel in a wind swept corner of Kent.
She grew up in Sunderland and studied Illustration at Newcastle. She has worked as an art director in publishing, packaging and food styling.
Her style layers painterly and abstract with graphic elements and patterns. Her still life painting mixes old and new objects with no apparent connection. Ellis loves colour and the joy that brings, Smartie blue, peppermint, bubblegum and sherbet lemon abound.
Ellis worked as an art director in London for many years and has now traded in her train card for her studio which she shares with her husband and two barky dogs.
