Ellis, a recent graduate from Whitecliffe, presents a dynamic array of Tondos (circular shaped paintings) depicting stark nocturne like silhouettes of the Kauri and other native trees for this second solo exhibition.

The trees are largely viewed from below, stretching up to a wide and arresting dark canopy, revealing a skyscape reminiscentof an Aurora Australis (The Southern Lights). This is appropriate imagery, with pinks, reds and greens employed to highlight a phenomena such as this crushing threat to our native forests. Ellis is also concerned not just with this symptom of our global problems but the overall environment which is suffering under the strain an ever expanding population.

“Kauri trees could be a metaphor for our planet and I use Kauri Die Back Disease as an uncomfortable metaphor for our very survival if drastic action is not undertaken very soon”, says Ellis.
