The Perfect Piece 

Recently, my painting titled Lift 33 was acquired by collectors who have a home in the sunny city of Fort Lauderdale. The curator* said to me, “Wait until you see how it fits in with their room design.” Really, really, is this not the perfect piece for their space?! It is so incredible how artwork can connect.

Art Exhibition in Fort Lauderdale

I am honored to be a part of an upcoming exhibition at MAC FINE ART on February 25th. Some incredible artists will be featured including a new favorite of mine, Ramon Espantaleon. If you are in the area, it will be a sculpture show not to be missed.

“Planet Sculpture 2017 presents sculpture as an encounter between viewer and the object. The exhibition features more than 50 pieces from contemporary 3D artists.

In addition to iconic stainless steel and sleek bronze sculptures, the exhibition will feature fascinating modular cubes*, geometric porcelain**, and many other media that challenges the inventiveness of contemporary sculptors.

Using both traditional and unconventional materials and techniques, the artists explore three-dimensional forms to advance the understanding of what defines sculpture in 2017.”  – MAC FINE ART, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

New Work – Aeropause Return

aeropause-return-openThis is Aeropause Return.

Aeropause
noun, Aeronautics.
1. the indefinite boundary in the upper atmosphere beyond which the air is too thin for conventional aircraft to operate.

In 2016 I created a cube titled Aeropause. It was a little larger than this one. I found the paintings made me feel as though I was looking out the windows of a spinning craft somewhere between earth’s sky and space. This place has a name, Aeropause, where the sky meets space. After some great texts from Adam Collier Noel (also a GREAT artist) at MAC ART in Fort Lauderdale, I decided to revisit this space. I returned to the aeropause of my mind and spun, and spun in infinite wonder.

Aeropause Return is now available at MAC ART in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Baker Museum in Naples, Florida wrote an informative description of my cubes that help explain why there are two photos featured for this work.

“(Ennis’s) sculptures are comprised of six paintings on wood panels hinged together to form a cube, which can balance on any of its corners, edges or planes. When unlatched, the structure unfolds to be exhibited on a wall with any orientation.” -The Baker Museum

I love hearing how each individual experiences my work, was reminded of something, was inspired, learned something, laughed a little, or whatever it may be. Please feel comfortable to reach out and drop me note. As usual, all I ask is for honesty. The truth is everything.
