A Transient Love was comissioned by Maitland Regional Art Gallery as an installation during the Summer. These Marionettes were hung from the ceiling near the entry way to the Gallery.
Marionettes have long been used to communicate ideas, stories and histories of human society. The installation “A transient love” sees Ellie reflecting upon the intense and profound relationships that are formed with people while journeying. Ellie recreates these identities in puppet form by weaving and stitching together her hand crafted ceramics with fabrics, beads and threads collected on her travels.
