Home@735 Gallery will be exhibiting a work by Louise Tuckwell in our ‘Colour & Form’ show opening on March the 1st.
“…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 Australia 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.
Her work is held 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.
