About Looking at You, Looking at Me, Looking at You

Can you see yourself? The female form in gray-blue steel; her head a reflective mirror is the subject of this imaginative sculpture by Canadian artist, Robert Clarke Ellis. These laser-cut pieces are painted so they absorb light and cast their own curious shadows. Clarke Ellis’s new work integrates minimalist forms with playful, even theatrical themes.

“The interaction (internal dialogue) between the sculpture and the spectator becomes at once personal and universal.” Clarke Ellis
