TIM ELLIS ‘Folk Stories’ ART EXHIBITION

Sugarwharf 10am-6pm

As an artist working across painting and film, Tim Ellis uses his experience as a former art director in the UK film and television industry to inform his work. Ellis has lived in the Douglas Shire, working in Port Douglas and Mossman since emigrating to Australia in 2005.This body of work has developed over several years as artist Tim Ellis hones his focus on remote towns of regional far north Queensland. With a cinematic eye, he watches and captures vignettes of everyday life, accumulating threads of individual stories and shared experiences.Upon returning to his Mossman studio, the artist creates large photographic montages, where new narratives unfold and people, buildings and activities are compressed into singular fiction snapshots. Minute moments and actions are amplified and past, present and future are merged. These hyper-real rural scenes offer a glimpse into reality and extend into fantasy.
