Ellis Sykes

Ellis Sykes work is a feast of vibrant colours and dramatic expressions within her featured collection: ‘The Mind‘.

The collection consists of layered wooden faces; theatrically poignant and expressive in nature. Each piece illustrating the often isolated, invisible experience of Mental ill-Health, and questioning the controversial stigma surrounding the conditions.

Colour psychology, light and shadow-play are all vital components of her work.

Ellis Sykes illustrated children’s book ‘The Tale of Sarah Strange‘ will also be on sale within the venue.
