LOUISE TUCKWELL

Louise Tuckwell, Artist, Gallery 9

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 a system of balance and harmony – drawing on the influential algebraic and geometric work of Ancient Greek mathematician, Euclid. His systems of logic, opposing axioms and geometry pervade Tuckwell’s intuitive compositions. Suggestion, surprise and a subtle sense of humour are also important elements for Tuckwell. Contrastive diagonals, obtuse colour juxtapositions and subtle perspectival shifts demonstrate a bold and playfully abstract architectural language. 

Louise Tuckwell originally studied at the Julian Ashton Art School and later graduated from the National Art School. While painting is her primary practice she is also well known for textiles works. A series of her tapestries recently toured the nation as part of the 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial. Tuckwell has been exhibiting her work for over 30 years and has previously shown with Tim Olsen Gallery, Utopia Gallery and Damien Minton Gallery. She is represented in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Artbank, City of Sydney, New England Regional Art Museum, Tamworth Art Gallery, Bathurst Regional Gallery, Allens Linklaters and the Justin House Museum.
