Ella is a painter who investigates my own experiences of the world, describing a process of perception, discovery and regeneration. Creating layers of associations from scavenged sources: A slurry of art history, the physical landscape and emotional encounters and all the fictions she has constructed in between.
During this last year and throughout the various lockdowns of the pandemic, Ella has been gathering material on my daily walks around Penryn and along the coastal paths of the Fal and Helford estuaries, making little observations ready to explore back at my studio. She really wanted to celebrate the joy of small things, be they frost patterns on the top of gateposts in winter or the colours of the turning leaves in autumn.
Her exhibition 'The Joy of Small Things‘ will be a personal celebration of all the little things that have caught her attention and pulled her through the last year.
