From the post on the website for Wall Street International:
Ellison’s newest body of work imagines macabre vignettes inspired in equal parts by Scandinavian folklore, obscure horror films, and childhood fears and preoccupations. About his rearing in rural upstate, Ellison writes: “As Halloween approached I would get on my bike and ride around the developments and back roads of Warwick, New York looking for the witches, werewolves, vampires, and zombies that were put out on front lawns, placed in windows, or propped up on lawn chairs as decoration.” These explorations emerge in this body of work as arcane subjects, re-invented as children’s drawings—dark fantasies of an imagination gone wild.
