With abstract there is no model to imitate. I'm free to expand my inner creativity beyond the norm and pioneer new ways of self-expression through color exploration and liquid manipulation," Ella Sipho, a Kansas City native abstract expressionist.
Sipho's focus is color exploration combined with liquid manipulation outside the main stream to create beauty, flow, and movement. This process allows the viewer to behold unusual color combinations of vivid, bright and bold abstract images not typically seen.
This process is unique as no less than seven different colors are used in the majority of pieces. Yet, beauty prevails outwardly within the chaos of multiplicity of colors and each piece is defined by the viewer's own perception.
"Art reviews of my work have yielded different opinions and responses. I've been labeled as a "Art Brute, Avante Garde, Cobra painter, post-painterly abstraction and New New Painting. All of which I accept as compliments, as they all are risk takers and in my opinion pioneers. For they step outside the box and beyond. And more importantly, not bounded by the status queue".
