Ellen Starr is drawn to nature as a subject for various reasons. She finds it spiritually refreshing while simultaneously emotionally and intellectually stimulating. Her newest exhibition, Natural Selections, finds Starr sharing her love of the organic with the viewer, engrossing us in natural habitats and lush ecosystems.
Nature’s endless variety stimulates the artist. “I love the challenge of organizing its visual complexity. The splash of sunlight on a leaf, the crisscross of stems and branches, the silhouettes of purple shadows -these are all elements that I can manipulate and interpret with the help of canvas and water soluble oil paint,” says Starr.
