Ellen Harvey's Solo Project "The Room of Sublime Wallpaper" to be Shown at NADA
"The Room of Sublime Wallpaper" (II), an installation by Ellen Harvey.
MIAMI, FL.- Stephan Stoyanov Gallery presents "The Room of Sublime Wallpaper" (II), an installation by Ellen Harvey. Looking into the room, the viewer sees a room wallpapered in newspaper containing a salon-style hanging of glowing landscape paintings that seem to move as the viewer approaches them. It is only upon entering the room that it becomes apparent that the “paintings” are in fact angled mirrors reflecting the hidden painted walls of the room and the illusion is shattered by the intrusion of the viewer’s reflection. The most luxurious (hand-painted) and the poorest (newspaper) forms of wallpaper are juxtaposed much as the escapist fantasy of art’s reach for the sublime is disrupted by the alternately dire and ridiculous “news” of our time.

Stephan Stoyanov Gallery will also be showing "Souvenirs of Armageddon", a new series of paintings by Ellen Harvey consisting of paintings of what appear to be Polaroids taken of urban and rural landscapes in flames.

Ellen Harvey was born in the United Kingdom and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She has exhibited extensively in the U.S. and internationally and was most recently included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial. Recent solo exhibitions include "Empty Collections" at Meessen de Clercq Gallery, "Brussels, Belgium, Ruins are More Beautiful" at the Center for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, Poland, Private Collections at Locks Gallery, Philadelphia, The Museum of Failure at Luxe Gallery, New York, Beautiful/Ugly at Magnus Müller in Berlin and Bad Mirror at Galerie Gebruder Lehmann in Dresden, "Mirror" at the Pennsylvania Academy and "A Whitney" for the Whitney at Philip Morris at the Whitney Museum at Altria. She took part in the Whitney Independent Study Program and the PS1 Studio Program. Recent awards include a Pennies from Heaven Grant, a Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative Grant, a Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant and a Palm Beach County Cultural Council Grant and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship. She has completed projects for both the New York and Chicago Transit Authorities, most recently including a mosaic for the new Metro-North Yankee Stadium Station. The New York Beautification Project was published by Gregory Miller & Co. in 2005 and Ellen Harvey: "Mirror" was published by the Pennsylvania Academy in 2006.
