Ken Ellis’s quilted images embrace an impressive swath of cultural history – from African-American and Native-American experience to nursery rhymes, the history of crime, and the Chicago punk rock scene.  His visual sources and hybrid practice as a painter/quilter are, similarly, informed by a gumbo of visual traditions and interests, including popular illustration and comics, African American craft, Haitian Voodoo and Asian art.
