Louise Giovanelli Exhibition at The Hepworth

Louise Giovanelli Exhibition at The Hepworth



Louise Giovanelli, an artist based in Manchester, is renowned for her large-scale paintings that delve into fleeting yet intense moments. Her artistry in texture and colour is remarkable.

The Artistic World of Louise Giovanelli

  • Focus on the tension between representation and materiality
  • Exploration of figuration and abstraction
  • Employment of staged photographs, film stills, classical sculptures, and architectural features as subject matter
  • Regular incorporation of challenging motifs such as fabrics and strands of hair

Her works are not merely visual experiences but are crafted to make the observer contemplate the act of observation itself. They successfully bridge popular culture with the timeless essence of Renaissance paintings.

“A painting should be the beginning of something. The best paintings are those that endure in your mind – because there’s this sense of mystery to them.”

— Louise Giovanelli
