Matilda Ellis

6 Apr-30 Jun 2022


For the Spring edition of our Nunnery Café exhibition series, we’re proud to present the work of London-based Illustrator and artist, Matilda Ellis. With a mixed-media practice spanning print, painting, drawing, and animation, Matilda’s work explores and teases apart ancient narratives and motifs in an attempt to nurture connections between the personal and historical.

For the work exhibited in this show, Matilda homes in on the poetry of ancient Greek poet, Sappho and how fragments of words passed down and translated through time can still have an incredible emotional resonance – particularly for the queer community.
