‘Still’ focuses on Louise Ward’s enquiry into the genre of still life painting and the boundaries and overlaps between photography and painting as art forms. She is influenced by her research into Dutch and Spanish 17th century Still Life Painting. The subjects in her photographs are often food , flowers and the micro world of insects and other small creatures which are carefully selected and juxtaposed within the compositions.
Louise originally trained as a Sculptor at Camberwell School of Art, but quickly moved to Fine Art Photography, which she studied part time at Central School of Art. She graduated from Goldsmiths College with a teaching degree and from the Institute of Education with a diploma in training artists in schools. Louise worked for many years as a freelance Artist leading socially engaged art projects for local councils and education projects for arts organisations, individual colleges and schools. Louise went on to teach Art and Design, becoming a Lead Practitioner. Louise now concentrates on developing her own Artwork from her garden studio in East Dulwich. Last year she founded Art@57, Exhibitions and Art Markets, which she currently curates at 57, North Cross Road, SE22.
