Louis is an artist from the UK, who joined us here at the Fish Factory for the month of September, 2017.
With a broad focus on landscape, and the reduction of shape and meaning from varying forms. Interest in orthography, typography, and iconography has provided much inspiration for Louis’ body of work, in presenting distortions and abstractions of known shapes, letters, and scenes, as “vessels for paint to move through”. The outcome then hopes to break down distinctions between physical forms, and written language.
Iceland provided a perfect geographical layout for the extraction of patterns within the nature. Instead of focussing on small details and features, Louis was able to take the vast and open landscapes, and use them for study of their most basic structure, as a template.
