Louisa takes great pleasure in developing her portraiture work and has produced a series of large-scale, dramatic celebrity portraits.
They are quite unique in stylistic terms and represent a fusion of realism with design and pattern based elements. They are painted in acrylics, metallic colours and enamel with the addition of a final protective layer using acrylic matt medium.
Flowers are a constant theme in Louisa's painting and she skilfully incorporates natural forms in many of her pieces.
ABSTRACT NATURE COLLECTION
Flowers are a constant theme in Louisa's painting and she skilfully incorporates natural forms in many of her pieces. These artworks are the original flower paintings, stripped away from an accompanying manmade vase, natural earth or even other stems or flowers, resulting in a minimal but visually striking composition.
She personally benefits from painting nature while living in bustling cities like London; focusing on recreating the stillness and unmoving beauty in flowers really is a calming experience which is proved to be very rewarding.
Each artwork are large acrylic or oil paintings, some are created using a palette knife only and some only with paintbrushes.
ABSTRACT ARCHITECTURE COLLECTION
Louisa Corr is currently based between Cambridge and London. She was born in North West Germany and moved to Doha, Qatar where she had a series of exhibitions showcasing her 'Middle Eastern' series of abstract cubist paintings.
These paintings captured the intense light and heat of the desert sun, reflected in the architectural shapes of mosques and minarets. These works often include striking sunsets which she represents with overlapping layers of translucent and opaque acrylic glaze.
She regularly comes back to this style to explore the pleasingly asthetic colours, shapes and scenes of Canada, UK and America.
ABSTRACT LANDSCAPE COLLECTION
Louisa is working on a series of abstract paintings that are designed to be visually pleasing and also ambiguous in relation to subject matter.
They can be enjoyed on a purely visual level, with subtle surface qualities modulated with vibrant colours and often partially revealed through layers of more restrained tonality. These effects are created by a combination of selective scraping back and adding accents with an assortment of brushes, sponges and palette knifes.
These works are often designed with a carefully structured composition encouraging the viewer to interpret each painting in a personal way.
