Sculptor Uses Her Background In Science To Create Otherworldly Animals Sculptures
The most usual way to merge animals and plants is to make a hamburger. But Ontario-born Ellen Jewett makes sculpture that shows the fusion between flora and fauna. Each piece of sculpture is painstakingly and meticulously made, dinamic and organic, if a little unsettling. The same goes for the components, too: each etched with additional detail, telling an individual story, and merging into the bigger whole of the sculpture. The whole item is wrought with meaning – and signs of the artist, like fingerprints and brushstrokes.
Ellen has graduated from both arts and science collages, and has a great interest in animals and their welfare. So the object of sculpture isn’t at all surprising. Ellen also has a bit of entrepreneur spirit, and hopes to become famous worldwide. The biggest perk of fame? Being able to travel far and wide with her sculptures.
Probably not in the same boxes, though.
