    ‘Unalive’ is an original, mixed media painting on canvas by contemporary artist Lee Ellis. The piece is signed by the artist.

    Details

    Contemporary artist Lee Ellis draws together the figurative with the abstract, to create textural paintings that brim with expressive character. Often dark in tone and mood, Ellis’ work is reminiscent of the tortured works of Francis Bacon, shot through with an abstract expressionist quality, that makes for a powerful, contemporary aesthetic.

    Think Jean-Michel Basquiat meets Francis Bacon and you’re on the right track for ‘Unalive’. A bright, tomato-red background, painted with thick impasto, frames half of a man’s portrait, which Ellis has almost carved onto the surface through a range of textural media. The outline of familiar, external features (hair, an ear) is unsettled by the skeletal face within, rendered in childlike chalk scrawls for a deeply provocative and powerfully disturbing expression of contemporary humanism.
