126 Ella Squirrell
Oil Painting, Gouache and Drawing
Ella (b.1995) studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art graduating in 2018. She has exhibited in Mall Galleries, London and regularly in Dorset and Cornwall, winning several prizes for her painting. She is a multidisciplinary artist working with painting, film, photography and performance. Her primary focus is painting, informed by exploring the destabilisation of fixed identities: race, gender and sexuality.
Ella is fascinated by observing people, their behaviour, temperament and clothing, questioning display and social ‘performance’. Painting semi-fictional portraits in real and imagined scenarios, she plays with fact and fiction in an attempt to understand her own sense of being.
'The element of surprise and chance excites me, to capture not only what is seen in a moment but also what is felt, recalled and understood'.
