John Ellis


Batesville, Arkansas

Starting in a small town in southeast Missouri in September of 1956, with formal education never quite working for him, he instead had numerous mentors to whom he owes a great deal of credit to. The main influence in his life and his art is the work of Carl Jung, with his writing and the writing of his followers Ellis had been able to find ways to look at himself in light and darkness, thus allowing him to fabricate stainless steel sculptures that combined his thoughts, feelings, and skills into a form of expression that he thoroughly enjoyed.  Though his work is contemporary, the inspiration for the pieces and the shapes and symbols used to form them are very old. He believes that in a world of fast-paced everything, perhaps a look back into the basics of human expression would give us a chance to think anew.  It is with that hope that he shares his work with others.
