ABOUT THE ARTIST
Angela Ellsworth is a multidisciplinary artist traversing disciplines of drawing, sculpture, installation, video, and performance. Her solo and collaborative work has taken in wide-ranging subjects such as illness, physical fitness, endurance, religious tradition, and social ritual. She is interested in art merging with everyday life where public and private experiences collide in unexpected spaces.

She holds an MFA from Rutgers University in painting and performance and a BA from Hampshire College in photography and painting. She attended Skowhegan artist residency on a fellowship and has worked with artists Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky (Rosenclaire) for numerous years.

The Plural Wife Project, navigates issues of the body in relation to gender, sexuality, and cultural histories of the western United States.  Exploring the inherent queerness embedded in early Mormon polygamy, the project engages contemporary notions of non-heteronormativity and re-imagines a community of women pioneering an alternative history.
