Louise lives and works in Buxton where she has a studio and exhibition space in her workshop. Louise is a skilled and versatile artist who relishes the discovery of a new technique or idea.
Her work expresses an explorative attitude, artistic curiosity and diversity. She exhibits mixed media, oils, watercolours, etchings and collagraphs, demonstrating her desire to experiment and build on her artistic experiences.
Louise is currently working on a series of paintings depicting trees and woodlands inspired by the landscape around her studio in Buxton in Derbyshire. She is concentrating on the patterns and textures playing with light, both within and across it. Louise achieves an almost hypnotic invitation to the mysteries and beauty of a forest, drawing the viewer into the depths of the painting with a sensitive use of atmosphere and light. These paintings are stimulating a whole series of developments and Louise eagerly anticipates the new processes and techniques that this work has and will inspire.
Our featured maker is Sarah Burton
You may remember Sarahs work from her collaboration with gallery owner Martin Sloman when they held an exhibition together in Nottingham, we are happy to welcome her new range of work.
‘Taking inspiration from the coastline, movement of the sea, rock-pools, pebbles and beaches I create original hand-built textured and layered ceramic bowls and vases, with signature designs in stoneware, earthenware and semi-porcelain clay.’
Sarah Burton will be demonstrating how to make fishes at the gallery on Saturday 5th Nov 10-4pm.
