About Ellen Richman


IconInspires

What inspires you?

Considerations of the visual elements color, form and space drive the meaning of my work. It interests me how this universal language continues to be an exploration. Informed by geometric and organic patterns everywhere, I am inspired by how the interaction of color affects mood, emotion and the subconscious mind.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I employ a reductive form of abstraction which emphasizes the plasticity and two dimensionality of painting. I begin my work by choosing a color and painting a form. Like a puzzle or a game I make a relationship to what is there. My intent is to create an effective minimal structured image of unencumbered space.
