Louise Blyton is a reductive artist exploring the romance of raw linen and dry pigment. Her work is often in the form of shaped canvases or three dimensional wall sculptures. Experimenting with colour, light and form, she explores the fragility of beauty through subtle shifts of colour in layers. The structure of Blyton’s work appears strong and bold, yet it is fragile and reveals evidence of the hand and thus invites a quiet meditation between viewer and work.
