Louise Thomas b.1984

The paintings of Louise Thomas draw inspiration from the dissonance between architectural structures and the surrounding world. She seeks to explore the architecture of abandoned buildings, including 1930s Italian architecture, North American resort complexes, Victorian hospitals, and Lidos. Moreover, her research extends to drawing upon her own travels, photographic resources and holiday brochures. It is through this understanding of the political and historical context of these great structures that that she can begin to construct her abstracted images of nostalgia, and fleeting moments of existence.
