Thomas Ellis is perhaps best known for his eclecticism,
but with this show he will be including some of his male and female
figurative images never before seen by the public.
Ellis’ styles span a range of classical realism,
impressionistic, abstract, and post modernism. Successful at portraiture,
landscapes, figurative, and abstraction, he likes to experiment to
the extreme. Working mostly in oils, he has also mastered acrylics,
pastels, graphite and charcoal drawings, watercolors, photography,
and anything else he can get his hands on. Always the perfectionist,
he worked on the painting, The Letter, for 14 years. Some
paintings in the exhibition took years, others were finished in minutes.

the audience will leave their preconceptions at the door,” says
