We are very excited to announce Thomas Ellenbecker as our First Friday Artist for the month of November and will be updating our new blog with his work over the next few weeks.
“I think of my lithographs as the result of image making. What I mean by this is that I have no preconceived image, the work simply evolves from an initial mark making process I utilize. Although I do focus on the human form, the content is the ambiguous narrative perceived by the viewer. This ambiguity allows the viewer to project their personal conditioning.
I have found that any explanation offered regarding the content disrupts my intention as an artist. I consider my images’ function similar to the Thematic Apperception Test images.”
