Louise Tuckwell: Aurora Place, 27 Jul – 3 Sept 2015View stockroom & exhibitions
Gallery 9 is excited to present a new exhibition by Louise Tuckwell at Aurora Place.
The idea of limitless combinations of colour, patterns, shapes and textures, whether simple or complex, is the starting point for Louise Tuckwell’s vibrant, non-objective paintings. Sparked by an interest in geometric patterning within the everyday, Tuckwell’s work searches for an overall system of balance and harmony– drawing on the influential algebraic and geometric work of Ancient Greek mathematician, Euclid.
Tuckwell originally studied at the Julian Ashton Art School and later graduated from the National Art School. While painting is Tuckwell’s primary practice she is also well known for her work with tapestry and is currently exhibiting as part of the 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial which is scheduled to tour the nation. Tuckwell has been exhibiting her work for over 30 years in Sydney and Brisbane and has previously shown with Tim Olsen Gallery, Utopia Gallery and Damien Minton Gallery. She has been a finalist in the Mosman and Waverly art prizes and is widely represented in public, private and corporate collections. Tuckwell’s works are held the collections of the MCA Australia, Artbank, City of Sydney, New England Regional Art Museum, Tamworth Art Gallery, Bathurst Regional Gallery and Allens Arthur Robinson, Sydney.
