Louise Chapman

Louise R. Chapman, is an abstract artist creating stylised figurative paintings and mixed media works, using oils on canvas, acrylics, oil bars, oil pastels, graphite and collage. Her work was initially inspired by the random marks created by the years of wear and tear on the pavements of our villages, towns and cities and a gradual understanding gave her a sound base to her work. Choosing a restricted palette, she paints intuitively, layering, wet into wet, scraping back, adding taking away, reaching a stage to leave the work to dry only to return to rub back areas, cover or reveal marks, colour, a completeness of all factors. A member of the Artist Hub at Wingfield Barns and a full member of Suffolk Open Studios from her studio at Hollyhocks, Heath Road, Hessett, Bury St Edmund's, Suffolk.
