Ellie Young Changing Faces Exhibition

Ellie Young: Changing Faces Saturday 20th January 2018 - Sunday 4th March Location: Oriel Mwldan

Ellie Young’s creates portraits, which aspire to show what people look like in a particular moment, when caught in movement or a fleeting expression of thought or feeling. Her work is inspired by film or imagery culled from the internet, as well as real life encounters. She explores thematic series emphasising the play between the fictional status of her source material, the attempt at depiction and the reality of the painted object. Her work sensitively observes intimacy and trust, but also masking and disguise involved in portraying a sitter, drawing on the act of representation as consistently involving an element of deception. Join us for our free opening event with the opportunity to have your portrait painted by the artist on January the 19th 2018 at 4pm Come get your 15 minute portrait painted by artist Ellie Young on the 27th of January, 10th of February, 24th February 12-5pm
