Ben Elliott

I see all of my work as fragments of a familiar story unfolding through time and cycles of life. Each piece is a personal narrative that may come from a memory, the present or future projections in my life. I often use archetypal imagery as a common thread to pull others into a story. My intent is to evoke a thought or memory for a viewer using minimal information, as if one were to open a book to a random page and read a few sentences. This act could shape a certain feeling, but the rest of the story could only be assumed.
