Elliott Stokes

My work attempts to capture—with neither judgment nor comment—the marks left by humankind on its world. I believe true beauty lies in the memories and exchanges we form through shared experience and collaboration. I make work to move forward towards higher ground from collective effort and self-liberation. I utilize interdisciplinary skills, creating a web of visually stimulating artwork bridging: street photography, observational drawing, abstract painting, woodcuts, relief/monotype printing, screen-printing, large-scale installations, sculpture, manufacturing experiences, social practice, community engagement, activism and outreach. My mission is to expose the repressed artwork in everyday places, encouraging individuals to move forward, persevere and find the balance and hope in life’s transience.
