Untitled (Large Variation)
Untitled (Large Variation) at Terminal 3, San Francisco International Airport is a 1100 square foot ceramic mosaic mural that suggests movement and transformation through color, geometry, repetition, scale, and spatial illusion. Ellingson’s practice is a synergy between digital media and the hand-made object. Typically, she uses graphics software to create multilayered compositions of great complexity that are translated into physical form using traditional painting media. All of her imagery, whether geometrically intact or abstracted and chaotic, is comprised of a vocabulary of simple forms that are digitally manipulated. Here she has realized her virtual design as a mosaic mural of commanding physical presence.
