EACH - Ella Carty and Hideki Arichi

 Hideki Arichi is a British born Japanese artist working with painting, drawing, printmaking and recently ceramics. Taking his cues from both natural and urban environments as well as Western Art History and Japanese aesthetics, he studies both high and low culture when considering his approach to his work.  He has taken part in residencies in Iceland as well as travelled on numerous occasions to Japan.


Ella Carty was born in Kenya but has lived most her life in the UK living in Oxford, London and Hertfordshire. She now lives in Penryn and works from her studio at Krowji in Redruth. Her paintings are concerned with sensation and expression, often reflecting upon remembered feelings, people or places. Her work describes a process of perception, discovery and regeneration.


‘The paintings here were about celebrating the beauty in the world and giving attention to its colour, rhythm and surprises.’
