'Figurative and Other Works' by Robert Ellison
The current main focus of Robert Ellison’s artwork is figurative painting, including the portrayal of human interaction. Robert’s expressive use of colour, texture and line distorts reality to an extent calculated to engage, intensify and reward the viewer’s attention. He finds inspiration in unusual aspects of the human figure, landscapes and man made or natural objects.
Robert has exhibited widely both locally and abroad, including a large contribution to a group show in a Manhattan gallery in 2017, and several solo exhibitions in the Island Arts Centre. His work has attracted a significant number of awards, not least when his still life took the first, second, third, and fourth places in their category of the American Art Awards (2016).
