About Ghost Dance

In this engaging abstract sculpture by Robert Clarke-Ellis two figures appear to dance together. White painted half-moon shapes top blue and red stick-like pieces that intersect as if embracing one another. The Toronto artist creates expressive pieces forged out of steel with clean bold lines; often in vivid colours.

“The "humanness” of the figures speaks to the viewer to elicit a memory." Clarke-Ellis
