Ellis Moseley is an Adelaide-based artist, living and working on traditional land of the Kaurna people. Moseley’s practice, which encompasses installation and ceramics, seeks to draw attention to social concerns through symbolic and conceptual gestures that encourage a deeper consideration of attitudes and behaviours. Moseley’s objects are constructed of wafer-thin overlapping petals of ceramics. The very fine layers of the vessels are made using paper clay slip, through a process whereby the slip is painted onto a plaster bat in thin layers then peeled away.
your left represents an evolution in Moseley’s material and conceptual processes. Constructed by layering thin black ceramic, Moseley’s vessels continue his trajectory of pushing the medium towards its extremes. So too, Moseley continues to expand the boundaries of what constitutes his art, proposing triggered cognition as his immaterial works.
Opening Event: Thursday 14 December, 6 – 8pm.
