Louise Weir

Studio 410

Louise is a gifted artist who works three dimensionally. She has sculpted portrait subjects ranging from judges and Popes to street people. She feels her strong background in classical ballet, vocal performance and art therapy training have contributed to her ability to express the gaze, the gesture and the essence of her sitters and to create life in her imaginary sculptures.

She is intrigued by man's essential nature as set both within and apart from culture. She is drawn to exploring the contradictions and the truths in the subject. She finds it interesting, and occasionally unsettling, to explore beauty in homeliness, heroism in the everyday, playfulness in the monstrous, the civilized wild thing.
