Dave Ellis’ work interprets music and sound. His paintings are often recorded in a form of digital time-lapse animation Ellis calls motion painting. Like jazz, these works provide Ellis with an opportunity to combine ideas with collaborators or work solo within a form that promotes improvisation and spontaneity. Ellis often stages events when exhibiting his motion paintings—inviting musicians, performers and sound artists to interpret the work live. His motion painting, Paint on Trucks in a World in Need of Love, was recently exhibited at MoMA. Check out more of Dave's work here.
