Art for me is about energy, light and colour in the people and places around me, and a helping hand in understanding how to navigate the big issues of the day. You could say is an attempt to create a subtle narrative describing the process of waking up as a human being and taking a step outside my head into an amazing physical world and the inevitabilities of life.
Over the coming two years you will see a more literal story-telling, which adopts symbolism and is influenced by an interest in paleoanthropology and archaeology, artists Basquait, Rothko, Rego, Bourgeois and Botticelli, as well as the terrors of climate change and biodiversity loss juxtaposed with the hope found in the natural and ever changing beauty of the Pembrokeshire landscape, coastline and wildlife.
I'm exhibiting this summer from the 10-16th July at Stiwdio 1 at The Queens Hall in Narberth in an exhibition called Waterways which will include contemporary landscape paintings and some preliminary work for a solo show at Tenby Museum & Art Gallery in Summer 2023. You can also share in my passion for art through following @louise.burdett.artist on instagram and facebook or joining a creative art workshop or course.
