About Ellen Cornett

Working in charcoal, carbon pencil and pastel, I create surreal tableaux frequently referencing fairy tales, poems and rhymes. While the subject matter of each image varies widely, a number of common motifs, such as human figures with animal heads, and animals in carts or on wheels, tie them together and make them seem like moments in one long, overarching plot. I strive to make something intriguing and meaningful from well-recognized sources, manipulating characters into odd vignettes of conflict, misunderstanding, and relationships gone awry.
