‘Cate’ - 2021

An original painting by British artist Poppy Ellis
Acrylic on panel
Ebony, hand-stained 1930’s frame
Dimensions: 65cm x 53cm including frame

Poppy Ellis is a contemporary British artist, she lives on the edge
of the English Channel in a wind swept corner of Kent
Poppy's style layers painterly and abstract with graphic elements and patterns. Ellis loves colour and the joy that brings, Smartie blue, peppermint, bubblegum and sherbet lemon abound.
The sensuous use of paint and wonderful consistency of quality make her a
natural successor to the early 20th century colourists-she identifies herself a 'new colourist.'

'I am an observer of faces, if I’m looking at you quizzically it’s not because you have crumbs in your beard, I’m looking at the planes and the nuances of light as it plays across your cheekbones and upper lip.
I record moments of bewilderment, joy, defiance and internal dialogue. Catching these fleeting, candid moments unobserved, I am a stalker of character.'

Poppy's vibrant portraits draw on a huge cross-section of old and modern masters,
but perhaps the strongest comparisons are Matisse, Soutine and Cezanne.
