The facade of Festival Centre’s Artspace Gallery has been given a makeover in the form of a gorgeous nature-inspired installation by Adelaide artist Ellen Schlobohn.
Ellen is a paper artist based in Adelaide whose work is created by meticulously hand cutting paper to transform a blank sheet into a delicate tableau. Over time, Ellen’s paper cuts have become increasingly intricate, and she has expanded her practice to include printmaking, digital art, installation, and public art. The installation features Ellen’s trademark paper cut-out inspired patterns across the gallery’s windows.
Ellen describes her inspiration for the installation coming from her “undeniable love for patterns.”
“I am constantly inspired by the patterns found in nature, architecture, and everyday life,” she says.
“I enjoy using the repetition of simple lines and shapes to create intricate designs that remain soothing and balanced despite their highly detailed nature.”
