Beautiful Chaos
Event date: Jan 28, 2020 9:00am to Jun 30, 2020 5:00pm

Tuesday - Sunday, 9am-5pm

Born in Lexington Kentucky, Charles Ellis is a self taught, abstract colorist who works mainly in oil on canvas and French paper. Painting without forethought he works to keep ahead of the inner narrator to be fully present and connect with and express something deeper that is beautiful and aesthetic.  “Beautiful Chaos” is oil paint on thick French cotton paper with rough torn edges. This method lends to more experimentation as the paper is flat on an art desk rather than a canvas on an easel. Painting this way allows me to work with more fluid oil paint without the colors dripping down and to use pencil colors to press hard without tearing through to create unique, beautiful and aesthetic images.
