WHERE THE EARTH AND SKY MEET
Artwork for @ salad.sage amazing new single Shine On, out now! 
Inspired by the song itself and drawing from my own experience of love I tried to just translate that feeling into a visual, painting what felt right instead of over thinking anything. I freestyle painted until I realised the background kind of looked like a landscape of the night sky and just ran with that. It very much became a love story told by colours. Like the purple and red streaks of paint keeping each other in balance circling the two figures. and the sky being made up of the females colours (purple and yellow) and the land the males colours (green and red). Which is how I landed on the name for the piece Where The Earth And Sky Meet. I wanted to symbolise the songs title Shine On which is what the symbol above the two figures is. I made it the inverted colour pallet of the rest of the image which is why it stands out so much. And I like that it looks like both a flower (that comes from the earth) and the sun (that comes from the sky). And of course naturally the sun needs to shine on that flower to help it grow which is a really nice symbol of the earth and sky meeting and as a metaphor of love.

THE BIG SLEEP
ellisld.weebly.com 
Inspired from a dream I had about roaming alone through the desert, searching for food and water and slowly losing my mind body and soul. I remember wondering the constant morphing landscape of the desert day and night. Feeling like i was walking in circles constantly balancing on the line between life and death like a tightrope making me feel like a walking skeleton. I remember being painfully aware of the sound of my own heartbeat constantly beating like a timer running out, similar to the way when you notice a clock ticking in a room and can't help but listen to it. Seeing visions of an eclipse that I somehow knew was a sign of my last moments which gave the dream this anxious feeling of constant exhausting urgency.  I've always been fascinated by dreams and wondered if it was just a random mess of feelings and images stitched together by your subconscious, or if they have a message or meaning behind them. I barely feel like i can take credit for this piece as all the ideas and visuals were just given to me in the dream. i love that even me (its creator) am still trying to figure out what this piece means or if it means anything and cant give anyone a solid description or meaning behind it seeing as its birthed from a dream. Which kind of puts me as the artist in more of a similar place as the viewer trying to understand it (which is especially ironic since its one of the few pieces where I myself am depicted in the image). Just like dreams and my favourite art it has as many interpretations as there are people looking at it. More then any other piece I've done, it demands to be interpreted differently by each viewer and each interpretation be no less true or false then the last. My favourite part is that by its nature of being born from a dream, it resists to have just one solid interpretation.

​LESS IS MORE LOVE (purple 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

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.
