​LESS IS MORE LOVE
ellisld.weebly.com 
Trying to describe love simply using clumsy words is in itself an insult of it. I'm a big believer in Taoism the way that can be named is not the right name. Meaning words and language are just substitutes and short cuts for expressing how we feel that are constantly being misinterpreted and changing and can never hope to truly grasp the emotion we actually experience. I feel like love is the perfect example of something that can never be explained, as if its too beautiful to be put into words and if it came with a description it would take away the magic of it and would probably inspire much fewer artists to try and capture it through through their craft.

Whos music is crazy creative and is constantly adapting, developing and in a state of flux. With so many styles combined and can jump from lighthearted to honest and sober. I approached the artwork in the same way of having everything in a state of flux and adaption from the fox's insides to night and day. And the combination of lighthearted and honest sounds in the music inspired me to let my inner child be the artist and be as crazy and creative as I like. And my inner adult be the editor cutting anything unnecessary, and trying to make sense of what I had created.

THE STARVING ARTIST
ellisld.weebly.com 
I've always felt a connection to the Studio Ghibli film Kiki's delivery service which this piece is based on, but wasn't sure why for a long time. The story of a young witch leaving home to move to a new city and follow her highs and lows of starting her own delivery service business. But the film can clearly be interpreted as a young artist trying to turn their passion into a career against all odds and all the failures and joys that come with that decision. From money problems, feeling like an outsider from choosing such a different path to everyone around you to the crushing feeling of losing the joy of your passion once it becomes work. Recently I feel as if pursuit of happiness is pointless because happiness, sadness and every other emotion is inevitable. I just want to feel and soak up every experience because any thing's better then feeling nothing at all. No matter what we always have a story.

THE HUMAN CONDITION
ellisld.weebly.com 
Suffering is a language spoken by all of humanity, but we put the earth and each other through it knowing the painful feeling first hand. And yet we are still able to smile and feel joy, I'm not certain whether this is a hauntingly sad showing of the self centred nature of being human, Or a simply beautiful testimony to the struggling perseverance of being human and the common goal of the pursuit of happiness that crosses all genders, ages and races.

PARANOID ANXIETY (street level)
How if feels walking through London at night drunk on anxiety and paranoia. Despite The looming curious feeling of something terrible happening, there's something fascinating and beautiful about seeing the world in this way that I can't look away from and can't quite grasp. The most beautiful thoughts are always besides the darkest. This was Inspired by Kid Cudis Day n' Night, Asap Rocky's LSD, Frank Oceans Nights, the Kids See Ghosts album, the Wolf Among us PS4 game, the Watchmen comic, The Scream painting by Munch, film nori, Van Gogh's Starry Night. Was inspired to try this new style from seeing one of my favourite artists @bakhemarts  perfect bold powerful paintings. I really enjoy being inspired by so many different art platforms. I think if a piece of art connects it, connects, doesn't matter if its a PlayStation game or a 100 year old famous painting. Personally i think hierarchy is best left out of art.

FAILURE PART 2 (YELLOW FREEDOM)
ellisld.weebly.com I feel FREEEE
Before any label you're given or give yourself e.g: failure, artist, criminal, doctor, black. We are human, which means we are equal, share the same experience of being alive which I believe can't be measured or rated. only celebrated. Peoples opinions of each other, good or bad are just opinions at the end of the day. We are no better or worse then anyone else, but all completely different. You can't logically judge someone if you're not them. Because you can't live and experience their life leading to the decisions they've made.

FAILURE PART 1 (BLUE JUDGEMENT)
ellisld.weebly.com 
I think people should be encouraged to share their failures as they do their accomplishments. When Someone identifies with a word e.g.“failure, winner, coward, brave”. It's easy to convince yourself that's who you are. But everyone has elements of everything within them. No one's a failure, winner, coward, brave all the time, but everyone is all those things some of the time. Judgement is poisons as it is pointless.

MOTHER & CHILD
ellisld.weebly.com
(Commission for the London Arts in Health Forum)  This piece was inspired by the poetry event I attended, one of the poets being @annafayebosworthwoolf .
A lot of the poetry was around the theme of becoming a new mother and mother hood. All the poems had a real sincerity and positive inner glow about them that I could feel was so genuine. These poems didn't strike me as being about a particular message or fact, but more freely expressing this array of emotions felt in an abstract way. So I created the image in a similar way using this mix of swimming colours symbolising the flurry of emotions within this golden almost womb like bubble as if nothing outside this new relationship between mother and child exists. The brush strokes making up the mother flowing to and from the child, like the give and gain connection between mother and child.

PATIENT 264
(Commission for the London Arts in Health Forum) This was inspired by a combination of art events I attended. inspiration for this piece came mainly from the poetry event day. I thought it was important to show the more negative and painful side of things for a full scope of the situation and to show that patients need more then just treatment of their condition. A theme that came up a lot was the feeling of dehumanisation patients sometimes feel. To convey that I made the background up of these haunting faces which I thought of as not actual people, but the idea of people which is what I can imagine the relationship can feel like between patient and staff in these cases. The feeling of loosing your identity outside the walls of the hospital and feeling as if you're just a victim of your condition was also discussed a lot throughout the poetry event. I showed this through scratching away parts of the figures face almost merging him into the hospital themed background. A huge inspiration for this piece was the quote said on the day A body is just a science kit that's been away from dance. Which inspired the footnote on the image imitating the ones sometimes seen on medical diagrams of the human body,  but with the twist of also showing the emotional side of the body part.

YELLOW IN THE BLUE
ellisld.weebly.com (Commission for the London Arts in Health Forum) This was inspired by a combination of art events I attended from a student art gallery to drama performance days. A common theme throughout the students gallery work was about colour and shapes and how they naturally emote human emotions. So I created this face using basic shapes and a range of colours. The idea of blue relating to depression inspired the bottom shoulder of the figure being all blue like a wave with a small figure drowning in it as depression can sometimes feel. But often changing your perspective on things can be a more long lasting solution to depression then medication. So I used the same small drowning figure with inverted colours on the top of the image floating, signifying that they are identical but with different perspectives. Just like shapes they can change from looking at things from different viewpoints. I used the colour yellow to signify the positivity with the negative (the blue). There being more yellow towards the top of them image and less at the bottom where its engulfed by blue. Apart from the yellow paper boat that I felt was the perfect symbol relating to the water (the blue and depression) but also keeping you afloat. relating back to the belief in changing perspective, the boat can be folded into another more positive shape like a bird, representing freedom. Despite it looking different, it is still made up of the same paper as the boat it was previously, just the perspective and shape have changed.
