Swiss and French, the artist Louise Laffaille was born in 1988.
From 2016 to 2021 her water color on paper and oil on canvas aimed to
stirringly and truthfully measure the moods of Nature.
Inspired by asian techniques her recent work Horizons and rencontres
explores the relationship between painting, surfaces and transparency. In
an environnemental concern lots of her work are made with recycling
materials such as plastic film, polystyrene, polyesthene. Coming from water
color, all elements that she collects from the print she takes in nature to
plastics she finds are selected by their capacity to transmit the feeling of
water and horizon in her paintings.
Her work has been shown in New York and Europe, recently at Galerie
Univers Lausanne, Hugo Gallery New York and at First Street Gallery
where she won the National Jury Competition . In France she won the artist
residency at the Castle of La Napoule where her work was exhibited .She
is represented by the gallery Amélie Maison d’Art, Paris 9e, and Françoise
Durst, Paris 16e
