Wild and Untamed

Wild and Untamed, an MFA Thesis Exhibition by Ellie Rose

April 15th - 19th, 2019
On Wild and Untamed, Ellie writes: “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 my 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.”
