Recently we were cleaning up our image database and came across a pocket of images that had been previously overlooked somehow and did not make it to the available collection.
Fifteen of which were from the late Ellen Dittebrandt.
They were an absolute surprise to me as I had grown accustomed to the surreal fact that I probably never would see new work from her again. There have been other times in which I see work from other artists and “rediscover” it, temporarily thinking it’s the first time I’ve seen it but then later realize I had a snapshot of it stored in the mental database from years past. That’s never happened with Ellen’s work, every piece has a distinct motion, emotion and identity, and I knew immediately that the file “1880.tif” from a 2002 folder was not something I forgot about. It was something new to me and I’m happy to be able to share them with you.
