American, born 1958
Lori Ellison works in a compulsive manner to create drawings and paintings that appear both rough and refined in their use of repeating visual elements. Using media ranging from gouache on panel to ballpoint pen on notebook paper, her work draws from traditions as disparate as Indian miniatures and high school notebook doodles. Ellison’s work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art and has been shown at Sideshow Gallery, Brooklyn, and McKenzie Fine Art, New York, among others.
Ellison is the recipient of a Wauson Fellowship.
