This work is part of a series titled Jazz Cubano.
This series builds on Priest’s long fascination with Cuban Jazz.
She analyzes the space and movement created by the complex rhythms of this musical style and attempts to reconstruct them abstractly.
She mimics the layered complexity of the Cuban Jazz through the physicality of her works.
From afar the surfaces of her paintings appear flat, but up close their collage elements add dimensionality, blurring the line between two and three-dimensional space.
Based in: Philadelphia
Ellen Priest is an American abstract artist who is inspired by music and most notably by jazz.
Ellen Priest's jazz-based abstractions balance directly on the border between painting and sculpture – vibrantly colored spatial illusions when reading from a distance and 3-D relief constructions of layered, collaged paper when seen up close.
