BA (Hons) Fine Art
Ellie Palin is an artist that grew up in Stoke-on-Trent, a place not well-known for its artistic expression, but she got inspired by teachers to delve into art.
Her preferred mediums consist of painting inspired by movement in film, more specifically, horror film. Horror is what motivates her to constantly explore new ways to experiment with themes, movement and signature horror images shown in these films.
Ellie’s current interest is using the movement of horror film to create very abstract paintings that depict the scenes she has chosen to paint. Simple colours are used to contrast the dark tones used in the films for example: yellow, blue, green and red.
