‘My Black Heart’ is a set of two Original Acrylic Paintings on Oval Canvasses by contemporary artist Anne-Marie Ellis. The pieces are signed by the artist on the edge of the canvas.

Artist Anne-Marie Ellis is known for her fashion-infused acrylic paintings, which channel her long and successful career in the fashion industry. Drawing on the iconic design illustrations of Rene Gruau, Ellis is takes inspiration from the Baroque masters in crafting her acrylic paintings, for a forcefully feminine, twenty-first century take on the classic still-life.

‘My Black Heart’ is a set of two, detailed acrylic paintings of a delicate, lace underwear set. Rendered in super fine brushwork, Ellis captures the gossamer weave of net layers and heart woven mesh, creating contrast in the turquoise trim of the black lingerie. The romantic, nude-coloured canvas is given a rebellious edge with lashings of fluorescent turquoise paint. Exquisitely beautiful and playfully tantalising, ‘My Black Heart’ is a fabulous reworking of traditional fashion illustration.

About The Artist - Anne-Marie Ellis

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.
