Elliot is a text based artist from Tāmaki Makaurau, currently living in Taranaki, who works in an interdisciplinary way. He incorporates painting, language, photography, installation and sculpture to discuss ideas of time, memory and ways we interpret our environment.
Elliot is interested in the art that can inform our lives and can be used as a filter or divining tool to see the world we inhabit with greater clarity and purpose.
I so enjoyed meeting Elliot and chatting to him in my studio. We discuss his amazing art career of nearly 20 years, how he works and connects ideas as an interdisciplinary artist, how he comes up with the words for his paintings and what they mean to him and his thoughts on exhibiting and selling his work.
