soul Shaker

 

“This is my heart as I travel all over; my spirit, my life and living.”

Flathead Indian Chief, Montana
 
Whilst spending time in California, Arizona and New Mexico, Ellis-Brown became immersed in the creativity and spirituality of the native Indian culture. Their humility and close connections with the earth was a fascination and for him, was in direct contrast to the romance, anarchy and violence disseminated in 20th century Wild West stories and iconography.
 
​Creating symbols based on native Indian petroglyphs, within this body of work Ellis-Brown challenges preconceptions of the historical American West. The compositions seek to make a connection beneath the surface, perhaps by deciphering codes he responds with a visual language that then resonates with the viewer. His work is an exploration of present-day wider global challenges and how they can be viewed in stark contrast with themes, signs and messages transferred from tribes who lived in harmony with the earth and its precious resources. This reveals a pictorial life-force with pure colour and graphic intensity, using natural pigments, paints, resin, wax and photography.
