ARTIST INFO

About 

Louise Reynolds (b. 1998) is a figurative artist from Hamilton, Scotland. She studied at the Royal Drawing School on the The Drawing Year 21-22 and graduated from Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art in 2020. Habitually reading the news provides a point of departure for her work, by combining prevailing and fad narratives into a vision of a dystopian present and future. She is interested in the bewildering oversaturation of media we consume, and how little of it we can fully understand. Through this she strives to make works with glimmers of the familiar, with the core inspiration slightly out of reach. Elements of fantasy, distortion and the surreal combine with a dedication to observational drawing, to form a personal magical realism. She primarily works in coloured pencil, etching, and oil paint.
