Ellen Taylor, From Nothing Comes Everything

Ellen Taylor’s current body of work is a marriage between her love of drawing and her studies in sculpture and spatial practice. Pairing these disciplines has resulted in two-dimensional drawings that express and celebrate form and space.

The creation of her work is an obsessive and largely intuitive process.

Formed through an intensive method of cross- hatching and colouring, her drawings repeatedly result in large-scale black masses.

Informed by natural formations ranging from clouds to giant rock structures, these sculptural drawings appear light and heavy, soft and solid.

The rock motif, consistently reincarnated throughout these works, is a nod to the creative process, visually referencing blocks of stone or clay, whilst echoing the obsessive nature of making. In this way, these forms celebrate the artist as creator and the birthplace of ideas.

Ellen Taylor completed a Bachelor of Sculpture and Spatial practice in 2008 at the Victorian College of the Arts.

Since then she has had numerous group and solo exhibitions in and around Melbourne, featuring both a mixture of drawings and installations.

The last 5 years have seen her practice return exclusively to her first love of drawing focusing on large- scale monochromatic works.
