My House Projects presents: Patricia Ellis
For her solo exhibition, Patricia Ellis presents a new smattering of her stylistically buoyant paintings. Ellis’s work focuses on her favourite themes of Canadian life and all its tacky glory. The paintings depict various aspects of life in rural isolation; hockey players, hunting buddies, summer fairs, pensioners‚ homes and children’s Halloween parties, communities born of absurd circumstance, collective endeavor and an irrepressible optimism. Both nostalgic and melancholy, Ellis’s deceptively naive handling of paint re-enforces the down home world of cookie bake outs and extreme violence on the ice rink. Yet underneath the gloopy blobs of paint and clashing colour schemes there seems to be a profound emptiness in her subject: a longing for wholesome value, unconditional acceptance, best-effort aspiration.
