I’m a huge fan of David Ellis’s intensely rhythmic artwork. I’m especially mesmerized by his motion paintings, which I discovered almost two years ago at a brilliant street art exhibit at the Montserrat House in Washington, D.C. Ellis’s current exhibit, True Value, at Joshua Liner brings all his amazing work together, as it features his motion paintings, his sculptures and his recent pieces on panel and tobacco-stained paper.
Here are some stills from his motion paintings:
And a small sampling of his paintings:
If you are anywhere in the NYC vicinity, this exhibit is definitely worth checking out before it ends this Friday, the 14th. The Joshua Liner Gallery is at 548 W. 28th Street in Chelsea.
