Drawing upon both historical and contemporary culture, Ellie Pratt juxtaposes inherited forms of representation with personal experiences to form images that capture transient scenes through use of light and colour. Her paintings, often depicting young women inhabiting dark domestic interiors or back lit by sublime landscape, play on a strange tension in the dichotomy of inside and outside worlds, exploring metaphors of the unconscious and blurring boundaries of reality.
