Ellis O’Connor’s studio/gallery is on the remote and dramatic Island of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides. The studio is situated at Sponish House just a 5 minute drive from Lochmaddy in the North East part of the Island.
Ellis O’Connor is a visual artist working in a variety of mediums including drawing, painting and printmaking. Ellis aims for her work to engage its viewers in the relationship between human activity and environmental change.
Often working on large scales and building up layers of paint or ink which mimic geomorphic layers, she wishes to confront viewers with sublime imagery that may evoke a change in awareness or sense of individual responsibility for environmental issues.
Ellis uses this visual language to challenge assumptions about the natural environment, to reinterpret the grandeur of natural land forms, and to re-present this visual information laden with power.
The space is part studio, part gallery so come along to see Ellis whilst she works on her new paintings whilst browsing finished work and prints!
