Ellsworth Ausby

Ellsworth (the subject of the recent show Ellsworth Ausby: Somewhere in Space,” paintings from the 1960s and 70s, at Eric Firestone Gallery) was a significant African American artist whose works were concerned with exploring the “infinite possibilities of two-dimensional space.” He experimented with supports and surfaces, creating multi-part shaped canvas constructions arranged directly on the wall.  His work is connected to Afrofuturism and the music of visionary Sun Ra.
