Religious Symbols/ London Garden Birds/ Numbers/ Sexual Predators/ Political Symbols
This publication has a very simple surface. A work consisting of 5 books, each with a different subject matter. But below these colourful covers unfolds a curious, absurd and sometimes dark narrative. Each book takes us on a journey of sorts, strange frictional relationships appear, some of which are nice and some are not. The divinity of religion, the Dickensian birds that Ellery sees from his windows, the abstract numbers, the sexual deviancy of the church, and the ideologies of politics create multiple layers of narrative that are personal and meaningful in different ways. Ellery presents these interweaving complexities with a minimal, direct and honest delivery.
This publication was launched at the NY Art Book Fair in September 2014.
