14th Annual ARC Salon (2019-2020)

Ellie Noir

Australia

Ellie Noir is a figurative painter based in Adelaide, Australia. 

In 2012 she received her BVA from Adelaide Central School of Art and has since undertaken studies at Studio Escalier in Paris, France and Argenton-Chateau, France (2012-2016) and at the Art Students League of New York, USA (2015).

Noir has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Pro Hart Scholarship, Australia Council Art Start Grant, Waterway Fellowship, the Tanza Lorraine Smith Fellowship and the Carbins Trust Prize. Her work has been selected for the Waterhouse Prize, the Kennedy Prize, the RSASA/SALA Portrait Prize, the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, the Art Renewal Center International Salon and the Fleurieu Biennale.

Her work balances the human life cycle against the vast, immensity of the natural world. Currently her studio practice combines landscape and figurative painting, with the movement and concept of the work being influenced by the landscape to create visually poetic paintings that blur the boundaries we create between humans and nature.
