In The Studio

Jason Ellis

7 December - 20 December 2020

Oliver Sears Gallery is pleased to present

In The Studio | Jason Ellis, a survey of new work, unseen work & recent highlight presented in the artist’s studio, Dublin city centre 

 

"For me, the discovery of the exhibition is the work of the sculptor Jason Ellis.  It seems of our time by being so resolutely out of time."

 

Comments from Lord Gowrie's review of our 'In Residence' exhibition, London 2015, curated by Brian Kennedy.

Jason Ellis studied sculpture at the University of Chichester. His tutor, Alan Saunders, had studied under Anthony Caro at Central Saint Martins. Following his degree, he trained and worked as a sculpture conservator in London for 8 years and Ireland for a further 12 years. In 2006 he left conservation and turned exclusively to producing his own sculpture. The combination of a fine art background and training in conservation has influenced his art practice and his appreciation of the medium of stone and the skill of the artisan is acute. The quality of execution of each work testifies to the patience he had to learn on the bench. Ellis’s work can be found in various private and public collections, including the Irish State Art Collection, Office of Public Works, Ireland, Bank of Ireland, University College Dublin, University College Cork, Trinity College, Dublin, and the Irish Presidential Collection. Commissions include The McDonogh Stone for the Druid Theatre, Galway, 2009, and - hedra  at the 12th Venice Architecture Biennale. In 2014 he was invited into the National Self-Portrait Collection of Ireland. He showed at the Royal Ulster Academy in Belfast as an invited artist in 2016. In 2017 he exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Show in Dublin as an invited artist and the following year he was shortlisted for the RHA/Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland’s Art Award. He lives and works in Dublin.
