Ellie Byrom-Haley, whose background is in photography and painting creates multi-media works of art that combine these disciplines with the textural aspects of assemblage. Combining found materials and man-made objects into painterly backgrounds her work takes on an abstract feel. Her career in advertising and design for many years has influenced the iconography and composition of her pieces. Byrom-Haley considers her work a journey, Collage is a process of selection, dimension, juxtaposition, and association- Metzinger’s fusion of objects within a limited space. A field of color and a simple piece of paper can interact, conjuring a third thing capable of evoking a powerfully heartfelt and transcendent response.
