Louise Gresswell lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. Education: 2017 Master of Fine Art with Distinction, RMIT, Melbourne. 1999 BA Textile Design (Honours) Chelsea College of Art, London.
In Gresswell’s work she explores the materiality of surface and paint. She manipulates the oil paint, by building up and covering with layers over time - these layers become a metaphor for the past. By creating sensory narratives felt from the hand to surface; textured and rich surfaces, she investigates personal histories and subverts the tradition of painting, by embracing imperfection and fragmentation.
