Artist of the Day - Louiz Kirkebjerg Nielsen
Danish born Louiz Kirkebjerg Nielsen lives and works in London. She completed her BA in Fine Art at Middlesex University in 1996 and her Masters in Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art in 1997.
In 2000 she won the KPMG Art Award Sculpture Commission. She had her first exhibition in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1988 and has since then exhibited her work in England, Wales, Germany, Iceland, Portugal, USA and China.
In her new series of paper-cut screenprints, Louiz explores the theme of journeying into imaginary places, where the impossible is possible and only the sky is the limit. These cityscapes are constructed using photographs of London buildings, trees and landmarks, each pointing to the sky.
The in-between places on the white paper are hand-cut to create a web of paths where tiny figures connect.
These cut-out stepping-stones are an invitation to work our way across the paper, stepping from one place to another, creating our own story-lines.
Come along to East London Printmakers Annual Exhibition to celebrate a fantastic year of printmaking.
