Blaine Ellis Statement


Artist Statement
Envisioning photography as the study of luminance, the interplay of light, form, and gesture in an instant of time; I have been drawn to sacred architecture with a emphasis on pre-industrial natural illumination.
In the tradition of sacred architecture light has been a symbol of the transcendent, a metaphor for the unknowable. Sacred space becomes a visual theology, a sculpture in light, which I then re-interpret through the medium of photography. These images in silver become a meditation, which expresses mans attempts at self-definition through matter, form and luminosity.
