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 works. Paintings & Tapestries comprises a new series of paintings on board accompanied by ten tapestries. Often made up of more than one individual board, each painting reveals surprises and subtle reinterpretations of Tuckwell’s distinctive abstract language. Contrastive diagonals, stripes, obtuse colour juxtapositions and perspectival shifts are enhanced by the chance assembling of separate paintings into a single work.

Tuckwell has been making tapestries for over thirty years and this will be the first time they have been shown at Gallery 9. Representing an important and time consuming aspect of her practice, Tuckwell’s warm palette and simple geometries are delicately expressed in these meticulously constructed fibre works. Seven tapestries included in this show have recently returned from a tour around Australia as part of the Tamworth Textile Triennial exhibition.

Tuckwell originally studied at the Julian Ashton Art School and later graduated from the National Art School, Sydney. She has been exhibiting her work for over 30 years in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and has previously shown with Tim Olsen Gallery, Utopia Gallery and Damien Minton Gallery. Tuckwell is widely represented in public, private and corporate collections, including MCA Australia, Artbank, City of Sydney, New England Regional Art Museum, Tamworth Art Gallery, Bathurst Regional Gallery and Allens Linklaters. Paintings & Tapestries is her fourth exhibition at Gallery 9.
