Developing his understanding of human anatomy, Ellis was granted access to an extraordinary collection of plaster casts kept by the Discipline of Anatomy at the School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin. Here, Ellis, has chosen to re-create a number of body and animal parts, internal and external, and turned them into ciphers for emotional and psychological expression. Ellis' long history as a stone conservator gives him a deep understanding of the technical knowledge necessary to physically make objects from a variety of materials including limestone, marble, slate and sandstone. The exhibition runs until 1st December 2016 at the Oliver Sears Gallery at 29 Molesworth Street, Dublin 2.
