Praise For…

"Stumbling upon Ellcock’s secret universe, one’s art receptors attach to new images with new meanings, and one experiences a shock of awakening. Known art has become too associated with reason, predictability, and control. Ellcock’s cabinet presents art in its wild elemental state, as a fiery series of symbols and images which are simultaneously alien and already-known."
