Ellen Witley is an artist from Norfolk currently residing and working in London. Her practice investigates the gap in between opposing forces present within the human condition. The tension between strength and fragility is at the core of Ellen's practice which is communicated through a range of media such as film, sculpture, photography and print.  Ellen focuses on creating artwork to challenge the viewers perception of bodies, boundaries, the self and other by exploring the dialogue between sight and touch in relation to image and object.
