Portrait of Louise Davies RE

Painterly images using intense layers of translucent colour and overlapping shifting shapes are pulled together by calligraphic lines that define the subject matter. This is the hallmark of artist Louise Davies RE. Her work covers a range of techniques including painting, etching and monoprints. All of which employ the artist’s individual approach to colour.

Much of this work stems from her formative years in the West of England where the countryside was her place of reference.  Later moving to London the artist reminisced on the landscape by adding her own romantic notion of colour to emphasise the beauty of nature, induced by nostalgia for the past. Suns rising and setting; turbulent storms; calm and troubled waters,  are all represented by the artist using her unique style of layering bold transparencies of colour that are all enveloping

Davies also uses drama and  vibrant colour to depict London and cityscapes. Buildings are back lit by luminescent skies that add magic and excitement to the already vibrant city. The River Thames is set alight with neon colours that reflect the mood of the image. And yet, the addition of line adds structure to the scene giving it stability.

It is apparent in all of Davies work that her love of the environment is paramount and that her intuitive use of the media is testament to her mastery of these techniques.

Louise Davies R.E. is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers  and currently resides in London with her husband and family. She has devoted the last thirty five years to her art work having trained as a painter and printmaker.
