"My painting practice and current Doctoral Research is based on memories of places I have lived or longingly imagined, with a focus on the landscape and heritage of coastal communities of East Cleveland. This examines the extent artists can meaningfully inform an understanding of a place, with a focus on Solastalgia - the homesickness we feel while still at home. It’s the pain and longing we feel as we realize the world immediately around us is changing, with our love for that world serving as a catalyst for action on its behalf.

My paintings convey an idea and essence of a place and the melancholy of longing and wanting to belong. An unfashionable romanticism grounded in the act of painting."

'The Bucket, 2024' by Gordon Dalton




Artch was established in 2020 by artist Lucy Kent as an artist-led platform dedicated to promoting art with purpose.  We direct a large portion of our sales to artists and charities, challenging the traditional art market paradigm.

“We strive to dismantle art world barriers, ensuring art is accessible to all. We believe in the power of community: and that artists joining their voices collectively can affect meaningful change and have a positive impact on the world around us.’

Lucy Kent


How do I hang a new piece with works I already have?

We love mixing in new works with existing are in your collection. It can be a great way to do this as part of a gallery wall or a specific place on it’s own. Buying more contemporary work and hanging this alongside traditional work you may have inherited, is a great way of modernising a space and giving these more traditional pieces new life. Our advice would be to have a common thread that runs between the 2 pieces, that ties them together - this could be similar tones or colours, or a similar theme or subject in both the works.  

Does art make a good wedding present?

We have lots of pieces that would make brilliant wedding presents. Buying art as a gift is such a meaningful present and will forever be a talking piece for that couple, and tell a story of the people that bought them that piece and remind them of their wedding. Prints are always an easy and affordable wedding gift. Or if you want to club together with some friends and buy an original framed piece, you will definitely win the prize for most unique gift!

How do I choose a frame?

This is a very favourite topic of ours - we LOVE framing!  How you frame depends on the space you’d like to hang the piece in.  If you are hanging on a neutral wall, we love to go for a colourful frame. And using an interesting moulding, be it reeded or bobbin, is a great way of adding texture to a room.  For works on paper I love a deckled paper edge - in this case I love to float or surface mount the paper, so you can see this deckled edge and then a simple wood frame. If you are trying to make a space more contemporary, framing can be a great way to add to this, like a tray frame on a large canvas piece. I also love framing traditional art works in modern frames and vice versa; a modern little print in a really traditional old antique gilt frame.

Do you sell gift cards?

Yes we absolutely do - this is the perfect gift solution for that person who either has everything, or you just can’t choose which artwork to buy for them. A lovely gift for someone to choose exactly what they would like from our large collection of art work.
