About Ella Carty

(B.1971 Nairobi, Kenya) I am a painter who investigates my own experiences of the world.
I am interested in describing a process of perception, discovery and regeneration: Spitting out paint and matter as I go along. A messy and rewarding process and something that keeps me endlessly satisfied.

I create layers of associations from scavenged sources: a slurry of art history, of physical landscape and emotional encounters and all the fictions I have constructed in between, especially the fictions I suppose.

I live in Penryn, near Falmouth in Cornwall and my studio is at Krowji in Redruth, U.K.

I am currently represented by Josie Eastwood Fine Art, U.K.

I have exhibited widely in the U.K. and sold my paintings to clients in the U.S. Canada, Australia, the Middle East, the Far East as well as in the U.K. and Europe.
