The Elements in Colour
"Intense layers of translucent colour and overlapping, shifting shapes are pulled together by fluid lines. These are the hallmarks of British painter-printmaker Louise Davies RE. Her work covers a range of techniques, from oil painting to etching and monoprint, in which her glorious approach to colour sings through.
Much of this stems from a childhood spent in the West Country, where the countryside was her place of reference. Later moving to London, she reminisced about that landscape by adding her own romantic palette to emphasise nature’s beauty. Suns rising and setting, turbulent storms, waters calm and troubled, are represented through Louise’s unique way of layering bold and all enveloping transparencies of colour.
In her London pieces, buildings are backlit by luminescent skies, adding magic and excitement to the already vibrant city. The Thames is set alight with neon tones, reflecting the mood of the image. At the same time, the addition of line adds structure to the scene, giving it stability.
It is apparent in all of Davies’s work that her love of the environment is paramount, and her intuitive use of the various media testament to her mastery of these techniques.
A fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, Louise lives and works south east London. She studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins and has a Master’s in Printmaking from Camberwell College of Art." ~ Jackie Newell R.E.
