Louise Giovanelli

Featured as “one to watch” by Saatchi Art, Louise Giovanelli is an emerging artist whose haunting yet beautiful work is an examination of the sensorial possibilities of paint. Over the past 3-4 years Giovanelli’s practice in the broadest sense has examined alternative ways of looking and perceiving within the rich tradition of painting. Her interest in historic paintings is longstanding but recent trips to international collections have suggested new ways of working with them.
