Painter Ella Carty becomes member of the NSA

Krowji tenant Ella Carty has just become a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists.

“Ella is a painter and printmaker based at Krowji in Redruth. She says of her work, “I am interested in perception, discovery and regeneration”, an engagement with process that Ella goes on to describe as, “ creating 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”, a layering of thoughts and ideas that is reflected in the richly layered surfaces of her paintings.”

The NSA is a group of about sixty professional artists who either live in the South West or have strong connections with the area. The membership is composed of artists working across the full range of contemporary media including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, video/digital, site specific and performance.
