Ella Dreyfus

About Ella

Dr Ella Dreyfus is an Australian contemporary visual artist, photographer, senior lecturer in photography and Head of Public Programs at the National Art School in Sydney.

For over two decades Dreyfus was fascinated by the tenuous nature of the body’s relationship with its borders and how the boundaries became disturbed at certain times of life. In later years her focus shifted away from the physical body towards internal and emotional states of being, in a series on fraught familial relationships, and with the names of her deceased relatives placed in historical locations in Europe. Her work has expanded to include installations in public places combined with photography.

Ella’s portrait for This Wild Song is currently a work in progress.
