dot-art: Addicted to Dots – Clare Ellis

Indian Summer  - Clare Ellis17 June – 2 August

Liverpool based painter Clare Ellis is to hold her first solo show at the dot-art Showroom this summer. Her distinctive and highly decorative work, with its intricate and textural patterns of dots, has gained many admirers within the art world; with this show she hopes to extend its reach and appeal.

Self taught Clare has been developing her unique style for over three years, and says she strives for her paintings to be “beautiful, intricately detailed, vibrant and mesmerising”. In 2012 she was long-listed for the John Moores Painting Prize, and is a regular contributor to group shows across the region. Aboriginal art has been a clear influence on her work, and while historically her paintings have all been abstract, this show features the first in a new series of work looking at the architecture of Liverpool.

The exhibition is open to the public from 12.00 – 18.00 Monday to Friday and by appointment, at dot-art, 16 Queen Avenue, Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 4TX. Please call 0845 017 6660 or see for more information or to make an appointment. All work is for sale and admission is free.
