Artist Anne-Marie Ellis is known for her fashion-infused acrylic paintings, which draw on her long and successful career in the fashion industry. With a foundation in visual art and a degree in fashion design, Ellis went on to co-found a design consultancy where she designed womenswear for numerous luxury and high-end brands.
So much of this approach finds its way into the fine art that she produces today: from minimalist monochrome palettes to the textures of lace and silk; from the attention to clean lines and statement composition, to an eye for beauty in the tiniest of details, Ellis’s work is presided over by a sensitivity to sartorial design. Yet her inspiration doesn’t stop here: Ellis acrylic paintings are as much conditioned by the iconic fashion illustrations of Rene Gruau as they are by the Baroque masters, from Caravaggio to Vermeer.
The play of light and shade, and the use of colour accenting, bring Ellis’s work to life with the painterly precision of the traditional still life. Just as perfume evokes a memory, so Ellis’s paintings - which so often incorporate the classic contours of iconic perfume bottles - capture sensual emotion, for a twenty-first century feminine aesthetic.
