> DESCRIPTION

WE LIVE IN NY $ LA presents WHIM JOBS, an exhibition of work by Ellen Nielsen. Using craft processes on an exaggerated scale, Nielsen's work addresses issues of consumerism, labor, ornamentation, and spectacle. In WHIM JOBS, benign decorations are transformed into monstrous objects of desire. Symbols of feminine whimsy and excess become potent and imposing forms.

Originally from Wisconsin, Ellen Nielsen received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. She is currently an MFA candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This is her first solo show. Her work can be seen at www.ellennielsen.net
