Back to the Future

Ellie Green //

“Ellie Green develops a rapport between the ideals of women then and now. Her work although seemingly based in the historic, typifies the inner dialogue that young women are having surrounding women’s history and how this helps us develop our modern identity.

Green takes us on an enigmatic journey through popular culture, folk
tales and seminal texts in trying to bring resolution to this age old
question. Her candid approach to this is best seen in the way in
which she introduces her ‘self’ to the work. In her self portraits
she assumes the position of the ‘every-woman’ and in so doing offers a
platform for the viewer to also assimilate themselves in such
conceits. She offers us a rare and benign opportunity to connect
with her thoughts, fears and aspirations through the fragility of the
lucid frames.”
