Ella West – MA/MFA

I am a multimedia artist working both independently and collaboratively across sculpture, installation, photography and printmaking. Through the work, I’m concerned with understanding how geological material shapes much of our lives. From forming the landscape to determining our relationships with natural resources, I’m interested in the ways that geology has entangled itself within nature and human culture across time, and how it can shape our notion of ‘home'.
