LEOMIE WILLOUGHBY ELLIS - After the Storm

09/23/2017

 

 

This idea for this exhibition came to me while walking along Huia beach, among the debris thrown from the land into the water and lashed back on to the shore.

 

Having come through another time of adversity into the relative light of health and strength I realised it was a good metaphor for life. The calm after the storm, the clearing of the skies, freshly washed clean and the opportunity to start again.

 

I hope these paintings express my joy of life, even when interrupted by bad weather and hard times, finding the beauty in the little things as well as the big vistas, washed clean after the storm.
