NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Ella Prince in The Latin American Contemporary Fine Art Competition.

Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.

About the Artist

The work of Ella Prince is about the constructed nature of space. Her artistry explores space as something experienced rather than exclusively measured. Capturing the sensation of distance, there’s an almost geometric quality to her work—especially in a piece like America! I’m for the Birds, which artfully blends positive and negative space to surround the focal object with an eerie, poetic significance.

Rather than merely suggest transit through space, the envelope at the work’s center appears like it’s already flying—the frame around it functioning like amber that has crystallized around its message.
