About the Artist: Nicola Ellis

Nicola is interested in the properties, value, function and circulation of materials. She has a current focus on metals and the companies that work with them, her work draws on the visual and spoken language of industry operations, fabrication and profiling processes. The parameters for her sculpture, installation, drawings and videos include relationships between people, businesses and technology.

About the Gallery: Castlefield Gallery

Established by artists in 1984, Castlefield Gallery is the first public contemporary visual art gallery to have opened in Manchester. The arrival of Castlefield Gallery in the city was a significant catalyst of what became a period of rapid cultural growth, and the increase of the presence of visual artists in the city and city region. As a registered charity, our mission drives our work to focus on artistic and career development for artists, as well as deepening audiences’ relationship to contemporary art. Over the last three decades we have become an integral part of the North of England’s cultural fabric and a vital support to artists across the North West and further afield.
