Moonflower, Ellie Malin

1, EM_MT_Moonflower_Exhibit_580x821

It is very exciting to be presenting Ellie Malin’s first solo exhibition “Moonflower” opening Thursday 21st November.

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Ellie’s beautiful woodblock prints and may find it surprising Ellie has not exhibited on her own until now. So, you can imagine there is much anticipation surrounding this show!

Since completing her degree in Fine Arts majoring in printmaking from Monash University in 2007 Ellie has exhibited widely in group shows and has been a finalist in numerous awards including The Senini Student Award at McClelland Gallery (2006), the Swan Hill Print and Drawing Award (2012), Bunyule Award for Works on Paper and recently exhibited at Australian Print Workshop Gallery (2013).

Another major project, which really thrust Ellie into the spotlight, was her collaboration with cult Australian fashion label Gorman (A/W 2013).

Gorman and Ellie were a match made in heaven for the A/W 2013 collection

Ellie’s use of the woodblock printing medium is far from traditional. Ellie’s striking interplay of shape and colour is carefully balanced by a restraint and subtlety which comes through in the textures and composition.

I always think Ellie’s work is amazing in the way it can be so bold yet really calming at the same time.

New work by Ellie Malin. Cirrus Sky II and III

The new works created for Moonflower are unmistakably in Ellie’s signature style yet headed off in a new and exciting direction where broader references to the natural world are intimated and composition has become lighter and seems to dance across the horizon or fall and shimmer through the frame.

New work by Ellie Malin: Painterly Sky I

“I started with offcut shapes of paper – remnants that I would normally discard – and transformed them into woodblocks for printing,” she says of her approach

 “These shapes now take centre stage as the relationship between them is explored through layers of colour and textures.”

“It was a really enjoyable process, and now I can’t wait to showcase the collection of works as a whole.

Well, Ellie, neither can we!
