Meet the Team! Welcome Ellis Hutch!

By , 22 August, 2017

Introducing Ellis Hutch! Ellis will be taking over our Art Soiree course in Term 4 with the theme: It’s elemental! -earth wind fire and water.

Ellis Hutch takes a lively experimental approach to creating works of contemporary visual art and performance informed by her fascination with how people establish social relationships and construct the places they inhabit. Her current PhD research is grounded in an obsession with Antarctic and lunar exploration. Hutch is fascinated with the photographs, diaries and memoirs created in remote and extreme environments, and by how it is possible to visit those inaccessible places vicariously through the images and writings of astronauts and explorers.

Ellis’ sense adventure has led her to undertake residencies on a cruise ship in Norway, a village in Northern Thailand and a winter month in Finland. In both Thailand and Finland, Ellis created works responding to the unique natural environments and paying attention to the ways they had been transformed by human activity. 

Ellis has worked on a diverse range of collaborative and solo projects since completing her Masters Degree in Sculpture at the Australian National University School of Art in 2000. She is currently undertaking a PhD in the Photography and Media Arts Workshop at the ANU and has an active teaching practice that spans art history and theory, drawing, video, performance and sculpture. 

Welcome to the team Ellis, we are thrilled to have you making some more magic with us here at BAC!
