Ellen Greene's Painted Gloves

July 31, 2013

Chicago artist Ellen Greene was born and raised in Lawrence, Kansas, a town full of contradictions: a mad mix of frat boys, Christian evangelists, ex-hippie hobos, punks and professors all called Lawrence their home. A compulsive drawer from an early age, Ellen was influenced by the art of various subcultures: tattooing, folk art from found objects, DIY fashion, punk rock etc. She paints on antique women's gloves, their implications of chastity and formality forming a backdrop for her personal interpretations of classic tattoo iconography.
