Biography / Artist statement
Ellen Doggett is a sculptor and painter based in Earlsfield. Ellen has a wide-ranging practice and an exploratory approach to media, incorporating copper, brass, textiles and paint into her work. The underlying theme in all her work is how people relate to their environment. Her work is a celebration of life reflecting the various shapes and forms it creates.
Ellen’s focus on body parts evokes a witty, surreal commentary on the humanity of objects. Favouring hand crafted visual art practices, Ellen’s work explores the human touch on the objects and materials she uses. From the ornamentation of the brass and copper plates to the detailed patterned material for upholstery, her work is an exploration of interaction with our homes and domestic environments.
Recently, with enforced lockdown and inward reflection, Ellen has started to experiment with 2D animation and self-portraiture. One of her most recent projects was to create a self portrait a day for 100 days in various mediums.
Ellen enjoys playing with colour, pattern and textures in her work. Her use of materials reflects her experimental approach to making art that vibrantly reflects life.
