Lot 1 - Louise Richardson - Imprint I
Mixed Media on Paper
Signed on Verso
Curated by Lee Sharrock
Telling stories is very important to me. Within art, anything is possible: scale, materiality, and time don’t matter, and animals and humans coexist on the same level. The diversity of materials with my work, both found and processed, gives me the opportunity and freedom to invent metaphors which run parallel with the subject matter.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artworks
My work has evolved from a process of discovery and investigation, collecting and eliminating ideas and materials enabling me to build up a library of resources to draw upon for each new piece of work.
I am currently looking at the idea of memory and identity, bringing universal messages to the viewer, through the portrayal of objects in my own memory.
The diversity of materials within my work – both found and processed – gives me the opportunity and freedom to invent metaphors which run parallel with the subject matter.
