Ellen-Mary Bromley

Ellen-Mary Bromley is a young Cumbrian, contemporary artist who draws her inspiration from the beauty of nature and her surroundings. Her colourful resin work pays homage to her two homes; Lancaster University and Walney Island. Her distinctive personal style emanates the colourful atmosphere of her hometown and University campus, springing joy and vibrancy throughout.

Land and sea, forest and beach, Lancaster and Walney are all brought to life with contrasting and harmonious colour in her bold resin works. Bromley draws from nature itself and is also influenced by many years of suffering from severe hearing loss. This has led Bromley to subconsciously make decisions in her work due to her synesthesia, a neurological condition in which information meant to stimulate one of the senses stimulates several, in this case hearing and sight. She explains, “I have been subconsciously choosing and using specific colours to ‘hear’ my work such as ‘loud’ colours; reds, blues, yellows, and by combining sight and sound my synesthesia allows me to both physically and mentally see my work- almost making up for the severe hearing loss.”

Bromley’s work tells a story, and she invites you to join her on this visual journey by interacting with her hanging installations that she labels ‘windchimes’, the participation of the audience therefore acts as a metaphorical and physical ‘wind’, making the resins chime together like a real windchime.

'Come forth into the light, let nature be your teacher'  

-William Wordsworth.

                                                                      

MY WORK:

My creative work includes hanging installations, suspending paintings in resin, expanded painting as well as sculpture amongst other things. This resin work is a continuation of my study into land and sea. More specifically that an exploration of and into colour; looking at the beauty of nature that surrounds me from both my two homes: Lancaster University campus and the woodland trail and forest life, as well as the sea, beach, and coast from back home on Walney Island.

I have created these large windchimes of hanging resins to capture the beauty and colours of nature; land and sea, Lancaster and Walney Island, Forest, and Beach. Combining them using specific colours that I associate with both “homes” i.e. warm reds, browns, and yellows for the forest and blues, greens, and cooler colours for the beach.

I use 10/50 clear glass cast epoxy resin with alcohol and epoxy colour ink pigments to create my resins.  The process is very messy and sticky as well as time-based. If you wait too long to pour after mixing your resin- the resin will set (this usually starts 5 minutes after you start mixing the epoxy and hardener). The three gifs above show you the process I go through when creating my resin moulds.

SENSES AND SYNESTHESIA:

During the development of my work, I made a breakthrough into the realisation that I had been subconsciously deflecting my Disability: Severe hearing loss of 7+ years and going deaf, into my work. Denial and deflection from the real-life problems I faced incorporating it into my artwork without being aware I had been doing so.

“Synesthesia is a condition in which one sense (for example, hearing) is simultaneously perceived as if by one or more additional senses such as sight.”

‘Synesthesia’ plays a huge role in the progress and overall examination of my work, as my years of suffering from hearing loss and going deaf at such a young age, had allowed me to tune into my other senses, and as an artist, this has enabled me to further explore different aspects of the work I create. In this case, colour! Colour has always been important to me, and as an artist I have subconsciously chose and used these specific colours to ‘hear’ my work, using ‘loud’ colours such as primary colours: red, blue, yellow- that allow me to both physically and mentally see and hear the work, combining my sight and sound, and in a way this can be seen as an attempt to make up for going deaf at the age of 22.

Above are pictures of the 9ft (yes, NINE foot tall) windchime hanging installation I created for my 2nd term work. There are 20 resin geodes in total with 4 colour groups of resins; Two general colour themes and two specific color themes:

1) Sea and beach-inspired. 2) Autumnal forest/leaves inspired (General themes) and 3) Rock Pool, wave currents, algae, seaweed, moss inspired. 4) changing seasons: autumn to winter, seeds, leaves, and nuts. (Specific themes).

COVID-19 AND DEGREE SHOW PLANS:

My plan for the degree show was to create a 25ft(+) tall windchime to hang in LICA foyer. This would have included a hung installation of 100+ resin geodes, with my third term being a closer examination into colour and shapes, as well as perfecting the base and structure of the windchime.

The idea behind having my installation hung in LICA foyer is to have large/groups of people interacting with the windchime, with the added effect of the movement from people exiting and entering the building which creates 'wind' and movement that moves the resins together to create 'chimes'. 

However, due to Covid-19 and the lack of studio and safe space, I am unfortunately unable to create work as resin work requires good ventilation and a lot of space where the resins can sit and set for the allotted time (12-72 hours, depending on the size of the mould you are using).

PREVIOUS WORK:

Above are pictures of the work I created at the beginning of the year. You can see how I created resin work with literal beaches and forest scenes inside, by adding sand, shells, leaves, and seeds into the resin. I later developed this with the addition of colour and text, which you can see below.

MY WORK NOW:

Below are pictures of the recent resin work I created. You can see the further development and the exploration of nature, beauty, and colour  in comparison to my previous work. The colour and technique used within the resin are more detailed and thoroughly well-executed.

ABOUT ME:

I am a 22-year-old aspiring artist who, aside from University have my own small Pet Portrait business, where I create commissioned animal and pet portraits using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, as well as making and selling resin jewelry, bookmarks, and coasters.
