“The universe is a big place,
perhaps the biggest”
Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
A visual discourse covering aspects of space exploration, ancient marks of indigenous people and a play on our relationship with the universe.
Through Ellis-Brown’s work in Final Frontier, we see connections between deities, transfixions with ancient gods and a modern day idealism. With his treatment of aligning varying mediums of paint, pigments, metallics and photography, his work reveals parallels between astronauts and the early pioneers who discovered and claimed new lands. Endless space, an arbitrary solar system, home to a fragile world with diverse tribes, each leaving their own monumental marks.
Everything is connected. Ellis-Brown’s quest is to reveal those connections.
