Ocular Echoism: The Autonomy of Ellis Gallagher
Ellis G’s first NY solo show at the Collective Hardware gallery was tonight. Entitled “Ocular Echoism – The Autonomy of Ellis Gallagher” and presented by the De L’Autonomy Mission.
“…Ocular is visual and my work is a visual echo. You have a bike, or handrail, or ladder, with some light on it and there’s a shadow that I enhance with chalk. It’s a visual echo. An ocular echo. I came up with it in 2006.”
