Introducing Ellis Hutch for Art Soiree

Ellis Hutch takes a lively experimental approach to creating works of contemporary visual art and performance informed by her fascination with how people establish social relationships and construct the places they inhabit. Her current PhD research is grounded in an obsession with Antarctic and lunar exploration. Hutch is fascinated with the photographs, diaries and memoirs created in remote and extreme environments, and by how it is possible to visit those inaccessible places vicariously through the images and writings of astronauts and explorers.

Ellis’ sense adventure has led her to undertake residencies on a cruise ship in Norway, a village in Northern Thailand and a winter month in Finland. In both Thailand and Finland, Ellis created works responding to the unique natural environments and paying attention to the ways they had been transformed by human activity. 

Ellis has worked on a diverse range of collaborative and solo projects since completing her Masters Degree in Sculpture at the Australian National University School of Art in 2000. She is currently undertaking a PhD in the Photography and Media Arts Workshop at the ANU and has an active teaching practice that spans art history and theory, drawing, video, performance and sculpture.

Term 4 It's Elemental! - Earth Wind Fire and Water:

Continuing on with our approach to interpreting the landscape theme from term 3 with Julie Bradley, this term Ellis Hutch will  look into the forces of nature and find ways to describe them using drawing mediums including ink, graphite and charcoal on various papers and supports. The emphasis will be on interpretation, abstraction and symbolism and we will be investigating different ways of portraying these elements. Each week we will working from images that you have brought along that reflect your thoughts on these elements. There will be an opportunity each week to continue to work on your artworks and also to receive feedback.


Week 1

This week we will look at ways we could describe each element and will make our first rough drawings of our ideas to be used in our final artworks.  Examples of artists who have approached this theme in their own personal style will be shown. Our first medium will be charcoal.


Week 2

Taking the element of earth this week, we will investigate what this element means to each of us. Graphite will be our medium.


Week 3

This week’s element is wind and our medium will be ink. Experimentation on various papers and grounds with ink will be explored.


Week 4

Fire is our subject this week. We will use all 3 of our mediums and experiment with various combinations.


Week 5

The element of water is our final element and once again all three mediums will be combined to make our final artwork for this lesson. 


Week 6

We will make a symbolic representation of each of the 4 elements this week and review the techniques and approaches of 6 weeks. There will be an informal display of all the completed artworks.
