From Nothing Comes Everything

by Ellen Taylor

Ellen Taylor’s current body of work is a marriage between her love of drawing and her studies in sculpture and spatial practice. Pairing these disciplines has resulted in two-dimensional drawings that express and celebrate form and space.

The creation of her work is an obsessive and largely intuitive process.

Formed through an intensive method of cross- hatching and colouring, her drawings repeatedly result in large-scale black masses.

Informed by natural formations ranging from clouds to giant rock structures, these sculptural drawings appear light and heavy, soft and solid.

The rock motif, consistently reincarnated throughout these works, is a nod to the creative process, visually referencing blocks of stone or clay, whilst echoing the obsessive nature of making. In this way, these forms celebrate the artist as creator and the birthplace of ideas.
