We are very pleased to announce an exhibition of work by artist Louisa Boyd, Louisa's paintings can be found in our 'Blue Room' exhibition space on the ground floor.
Those of you who have been coming to the gallery for over 20 years may remember that we have previously worked with Louisa who's early watercolours on paper were a huge hit, we are so excited to be working with her again, showcasing her new works on canvas & board, fresher & more confidant than ever we think that you will enjoy these peaceful landscapes as much as we do.
Proud to have you back Louisa!
My work centres around the persistent human desire to belong within the natural world.
I consider environment and how we navigate place though nature as well as notions of home and belonging.
My work features celestial symbols, sacred geometry, natural landmarks and map like imagery to describe a sense of belonging.
Depictions of landscape begin with a mindful walk through the countryside...Then using loose gestural
markmaking techniques in paint to describe the essence of the environment. The outcomes are not intended to be of somewhere specific, but instead illustrate the nostalgic feeling of a place and the sense of belonging that comes with recognisable natural forms and landmarks, helping us to recognise our home.
I'm always looking to capture the influences that the ever changing light, seasons and weather have on the natural world; depicting shifting, fleeting moments in time to create ethereal landscape paintings.
