Throughout Nancy Ellison’s extraordinary and accomplished career her iconic portraits have documented the luminaries of contemporary culture from the legends opera and dance to the superstars of music and film. She has a special affinity for the leading figures of Hollywood, raised in Los Angeles Ellison has said of her youth in a recent magazine interview, “most important I saw celebrities – often out –of –work celebrities in daily life. I saw the effects of the Hollywood blacklist on the lives of school friends. I was witness to the complete reality of celebrity. My awe was slowly replaced by sympathy.”

Ellison’s icons are powerful revelations. Whether shooting on the fly on chaotic movie set or in highly staged studio settings, Ellison has an amazing gift for drawing forth something of the elusive essence and life force of her subjects. Aesthetically striking and often surprising, this exhibition presents some of Ellison’s most important portraits. Her subjects include Jack Nicholson, Sharon Stone, Hume Cronin, Harrison Ford, the Clintons, Madonna and Sting.
