Louise Dougherty is an emerging artist who lives and works in Norfolk.
Her current practise explores the contrasts between macro and micro worlds and records the conflicting differences between being absorbed with the delicacy and power of a found form contrasted or linked to the rhythms of the skies and landscape. As a Norfolk born Artist, she is inherently inspired by landscape and infuses childhood memories into her work, a sense of a forgotten place or the found object that transports the viewer into remembrance. The collision of the macro and micro worlds is often subtle. The threads of colour allow the viewer a route of connection. An invitation to explore further. This tapestry of colours is sought from many sources and created in many forms. As a female artist exploration of the ‘Thread’ represents an historical, cultural and on a personal level matriarchal symbolism.
