MA Fine Art
Louise is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. Through wandering and entering ‘liminal/marginal spaces’ to provoke thought, she engages with the narratives surrounding the use of materials. She explores ways in which they can be used to find our relationship to the spent resources around us, simultaneously transferring ideologies of a sense of place. Grounded in sculpture, photography, drawing, and printmaking, Louise observes nature, natural history and archaic objects which can be found in the landscape for her field studies. Through this she attempts to convey works influenced by environment, erosion, and nature.
After producing a triptych of partially eroded spherically formed sculptures: Entropies, containing cast found objects such as seashells and using Lime NHL5 in a casting process to lower her carbon footprint, Louise’s approach for her new model of work developed into a more playful series of what she describes as her Studio Works, ‘offset’ with natural materials. Louise’s research spanned from, geopolymer development and environmental issues to female sculptors in her own quest to remain a visible, mature contemporary female artist.
