Ella Clocksin is a research- and project-led artist, interested in relating processes of human perception to both digital and tactile-physical art production. A cross-disciplinary background in literature and as a psychotherapist informs her interest in reading artworks as visual scripts or poetics, in exploring what can and cannot be articulated, how we make meaning from experience, and the evolving experience of self.
Widely exhibited in video and installation as well as painting, shows include the RWS Contemporary Watercolour Competition 2017, the Eastern Open, and solo exhibitions at the University of Oxford Department of Psychiatry and the Wall Gallery, Ely. Her work is in the collections of The John Radcliffe Hosptial, Oxford, and The Perse School, Cambridge, and many private collections.
Based in Oxford, Ella completed her MA Fine Art (distinction) at Winchester School of Art in 2010, and taught life drawing there the following year. She now teaches drawing and painting in imaginative experimental workshops and was until recently the Visual Arts Therapist at the innovative School of Life, London.
