Hello, I'm James Ellis

I create balanced compositions from meticulously arranged paper. Each piece of paper is hand cut with trust in a process based on chance. Minimalistic in shape and organic in form, my work is inspired by the natural world, yet remains abstract.

The resulting imagery is a delicate ecosystem representing a world not unlike ours, yet surreal. A place of comfort to step away from our day-to-day routine and reconsider the environment and system we evolve in.

"[It] allows us to engage simply through feeling, something that we all have in common."

The flexibility and playfulness of this technique enables me to start each collage without having a particular idea, instead letting my physical response guide the creative process. I can then create art that is not limited by culture, religion or social class. The work goes beyond these frontiers and allows us to engage simply through feeling, something that we all have in common.
