Discover a contemporary artists who captures ephemeral and sensual moments through meditative paintings.
Known for her large-scale meditative paintings, Manchester-based artist Louise Giovanelli captures ephemeral and sensual moments with vivid colours and texture. Often working with staged photographs, film stills, classical sculpture, and architectural elements, her work explores the tension between representation and materiality, figuration and abstraction, and how the mechanics of picture making shape our slow act of looking.
Giovanelli's paintings capture things that are notoriously difficult to paint, like fabrics and locks of hair, resulting in captivating, luminescent paintings that contain fleeting moments, rooted in both popular culture and Renaissance paintings.
