DIRECTOR and CURATOR, KAB Gallery, Terrigal

A fluid artwork bursting with energy! This decorative piece is bold and could be the perfect colour lift for a plain room. The organic flow of the inks and resin have given this artwork an emotive nature. The added penwork invites the viewer to explore the patterns and look closer at the areas where contrasting colours meet and blend. Grace Louise has used a pointillist technique across the artwork surface to create various shapes and symbols. It’s a versatile piece of art that could be interpreted to suit many various interior themes. For me it echoes a coastal feel – my imagination leads to reefs and aerial views of Australia’s coast.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

This work just keeps on giving. I love that you notice something new every time you view it. The layers and detail; the dots, dashes and fine linework are reminiscent of the style found in some Indigenous artwork. Some sections within the work make me think of aerial photographs where land meets sea. It’s an uplifting, energising work that would suit a big wall in a bedroom or even a loungeroom, to be appreciated by many.
