MFA Thesis Exhibition: Ellie Rose


  • McMaster Gallery 1615 Senate Street Columbia, SC (map)

Ellie Rose on Wild and Untamed:

“The subjects and concepts present in my artworks are reflections of myself and my experiences in life. Magic, folklore, mythology, animals, and nature inspire me. A key figure in my work is the Wild Woman, who thrives on freedom, independence, adventure, and who refuses social constraints and cannot be tamed or groomed by the expectations of other people. For thesis exhibition, I created an original imaginary narrative that functions as a utopian vision of my ideal principles. Using a vibrant and highly saturated color palette, I execute my paintings of fantasia, elaborate and embellished landscapes abundantly filled with characters and micro-narratives.”

Reception: April 18th, 5:00 - 7:00 pm
