Ellie Davies’ (1976, London) passion is the wild and impenetrable forest, it being the backdrop of her childhood.
Davies’ work is based on making small interventions in the woods: these sculptural dwellings evoke a fairytale-like context and reflect on Davies’ personal relationship with the forests. Sophie Maree is proud to present her latest series Stars (2014).
In this series, images of forest landscapes are combined with images of the intangible and enigmatic universe, using scientific images captured by the Hubble telescope, such as the Milky Way and the Norma Galaxy.
Using her personal experience of the forest as a starting point, Davies creates an imagery that is strange but familiar and at the same time hauntingly beautiful
Davies has received three honorable mentions in the PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris in the Fine Art Non-Professional series and has exhibited in the UK and USA.
