Louise Gresswell

6th international biennale of non objective art
Que des femmes/Only women
Melbourne virtual satellite
Hosted by Art Thoughts AU at Yarra Bend Gallery
September 22 - 19 November

Investigating her own subjectivity and its relationship to vulnerability and protection, Gresswell explores the materiality of paint. Textural paintings form sensory narratives as the painted boards are broken and reformed.

The debris of the studio is utilised as holes are patched and cracks are filled with whatever is at hand, string, canvas, hessian and cardboard. There is an act of defiance in the cutting and an implied comfort within the suturing.

Gresswell is a Melbourne Based artist. After studying a BA (hons) in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art, London, Gresswell went on to complete her Master of Fine Art studies, with Distinction, from RMIT, Melbourne (2017).
