Chelsea Ellis is a photographer and multidisciplinary artist who lives in Portland, Maine. She received her BA in photography from the University of Southern Maine in 2012. She most recently exhibited work at the Harlow Gallery’s juried art exhibition “Art2018” in Hallowell, Maine, and in the contemporary art series “Process” by AMPL Art Consulting in Portland. Ellis’ creative practice explores themes of mourning, ephemerality, anxiety and sensed-presence through combinations of object alteration, performance, body paint, and digital subtraction.
The arrival of an idea that feels powerful is a sacred thing.
