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 was 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 in responding to the movement of horror film through abstract painting, representing selected scenes in new ways. The flat, bright colours and naïve method of painting contrasts with the dark tones and subject matter of the films.
