Louise Montgomery Midlothian, United Kingdom
  Back to profiles

On leaving school Louise went to Gray’s school of art in Aberdeen passing with a BA HONS degree in sculpture she pursued her career in art. Techniques play a large role in the artist’s work, Montgomery experiments with new ways of drawing with mixed media such as collage, ink, using transfer techniques and often makes her own paint.

Louise Montgomery uses mixed media artworks creating artworks that walk the line between the calm and the chaotic, questioning how we can view the world in such a oppositional way. Whereby, she creates a consensus with two completely diverging aspects. Materials and techniques play a large role in the artist’s work, Montgomery experiments with new ways of drawing with mixed media such as collage, ink, using transfer techniques and often makes her own paint. She uses materials against themselves using the propensity of the materials to repel or attract one and other, this also relays back to ideas of opposite existence.
