I feel there are strong fauvist influences at play in Louisa’s work. It is a beautifully energetic and expressive portrait of a landscape. The use of bold colour, abstract line and patterns are cleverly balanced, and I could easily see this piece being a statement piece and bringing joy to any home. A bold display of colour like this could suit either a maximalist or a minimalist, but I personally see it in a colour filled room, with coloured walls, and equally bold accessories.

Colour is captivating to me. The use of bold hues in Lousia’s piece energises me and has me hungry for more. I see this piece in a home office fitted with matte black details and a dark wooden desk. The liveliness of the painting would filter out into the room so there would never be a dull moment.
