Mysterious Mischief
(Ellis in Wonderland)

Sue Ellis

Friday 21 September – Sunday 14 October

Sue Ellis' first solo exhibition—an intriguing and whimsical collection of wood-carving, assemblage and painting, that will delight and engage the viewer.

"Touched off by fleeting glimpses in the world, it gives rise to imagery in mind, a kind of living kaleidoscope of possibilities.

I’ve always loved making things, playing around with paint and wood and metal and hand-tools, unearthing little treasures perfect for a certain place or function other than their original purpose"
