The series consists of male and female portraits representing each of the eight life stages presented in Erik Erikson’s theory of human psychological development. The process for the production of the work is an in-depth combination of contemporary digital tools and traditional photographic processes and techniques.
Regardless of media (oil, acrylic, or watercolor) or subject matter, Walls maintains her consistent approach as a spectacular colorist, developing luminous representations in still life and contemporary genre imagery.
This solo exhibition of Ellen Priest’s work will showcase mid-sized drawings and layered paintings from two series: the ‘Up Jumped Spring’ series based on Freddie Hubbard’s lyrical jazz waltz, and the Berklee Series “Jazz: Thinking Out Loud, Reaching for Song.” The Berklee Series is the result of a joint painting/jazz project with student composers at Berklee College of Music’s elite Global Jazz Institute.
