Life

Lou tries to capture beauty in imperfection & calm in the chaos whether that be through imagined or found imagery. Sometimes she uses mix media such as plaster, sand, rice paper, fabric and twine.

Lou’s Target series is a study of the simple vessel as viewed from above so that it resembles the symbols on 2nd World War Spitfires & Hurricanes, built and flown to where they needed to be by brave yet unsung women. The texture is scratched by the trail of Lou’s character Brave New Girl as she trails across the surface

Works on Paper

Lou creates works on paper using watercolour or gouache to explore abstract landscapes, seascapes or imagined imagery. She enjoys the ephemeral nature of watercolour and the more robust, opaque quality of gouache with the immediacy and smaller scale capacity of working on paper.

Abstract

Lou Hamilton has a robust, physical, sculptural & unfussy approach to paint, surface & texture. She restricts her repertoire to simple but bold squares, stripes & crosses; shapes found in the landscape or in urban streets. She works with vigorous brushstrokes in bright acrylic colours, then calms the whole piece down with finishing layers of oil and wax applied with a palette knife or rubbed in with cloth.

Lou’s key influences have always been Robert Ryman, Sean Scully, Joseph Beuys, Mark Rothko & Anthon Tapies, but her work is resolutely of the world we live in now. She gets her inspiration from peeling layers of old walls and the light, mood, abstract forms of urban, land & seascapes but her underlying concerns are for the environment & the impact we have on it
