Ella McVeigh

Ella McVeigh (b. 1992 United Kingdom) has created a strong body of experimental work which lingers between the figurative and the abstract. Her intricate works feel like ancient reliefs of foliage and shapes steeped with an uncanny sensation. Her practice comes from a desire to depict chaos and order as a unified state and is based on a combination of visual ideas and drawings.Through a daily routine of drawing, she builds on disparate concepts and notions until they feel complete.Taking inspiration from widespread sources in her immediate environment and bolstered by books on natural history and topography, she has created an idiosyncratic oeuvre which is always in motion.
