Introducing new work by Jo Louca ....
We are very excited to show Jo's work for the first time.
Often the initial inspiration for Jo's paintings comes simply from gazing up at a light filled canopy, the magical effect being almost that of stained glass, a cathedral canopy.
Jo is often asked how the works are made and are they photos or prints or digitally enhanced? She does not use photography, computer graphics, printing processes or tricks of any kind in creating her paintings. They are simply painted in the traditional method with particular care and attention to subtle changes of tone and colour.
Using the time honoured method of glazed oil paint which best utilizes the paints translucent qualities to create subtle depth of colour. Though a very lengthy process, each painting taking many months to complete, it produces a wonderful rich glow, a technique employed by the Old Masters. Although she intends a specific reading for each painting she purposefully makes the works none prescriptive, allowing the viewer to interpret each work in their own way. Everyone seeing something different.
Jo's work will be on display in the gallery from May 25th. Make an enquiry about any of her work.
