Art off the Rock 2010 - Lot 18

Louise Johnstone

‘A Question of Identity’

Acrylic 76 x121cm


Originally from Edinburgh and now living in Invergowrie Louise is employed as a lecturer in Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.

Louise studied at Duncan of Jordanstone between 1982 and 1986 when she graduated in Drawing and Painting. Her tutors included James Morrison and Will Maclean. Since her graduation as a mature student in 1986 she has had five solo shows and has taken part in many group shows throughout the country.

Her work deals mainly with the female figure and take the form of paintings, low relief carvings and mixed media. She has also been commissioned to paint portraits. Her work has developed over the years from a pale light flooded palate with controlled handling to a bolder use of strong colour and energised brushwork and a more abstract representation of the female form. Although she used oil paint in her earlier work, the more recent work tends to be in acrylics.

Her paintings are held in many private collections in the UK and abroad. She is an elected member of the Visual Arts Society
