Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
Modernist Painter, Ellie Ali
Ellie Ali, a New Yorker by birth, and temperament, has lived a life that has informed her painting is deep and powerful ways. The music of the 60, 70 etc. adds layers of syncopation to her painting. The cultural vastness of the city adds weft to her warp. The distinct and powerful lines of her painting show her influences from Miro to Picasso…She captures familiar emotions in a fresh and genuine way…please spend some time looking at Eli’s remarkable paintings.
