David Ellis’ work interprets music and sound. His paintings are often recorded in a form of digital time-lapse animation. Ellis stages events when exhibiting his motion paintings, inviting musicians, performers, and sound artists to interpret the work live. He works directly on the walls of spaces that remain open to the public during installation and shares the making of the work with viewers. Ellis further explores sound with kinetic installations that produce analogue sequences in rhythm. He has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as at P.S. 1/MoMA, NY; ICA Philadelphia; The Mori Museum, Tokyo; Urbis Museum, Manchester England.
