Louise Tuckwell Biography

The idea of limitless combinations of colour, patterns, shapes and textures, whether simple or complex, is the starting point for Louise Tuckwell’s vibrant, non-objective paintings. Sparked by an interest in geometric patterning within the everyday, Tuckwell’s work searches for a system of balance and harmony – drawing on the influential algebraic and geometric work of Ancient Greek mathematician, Euclid. His systems of logic, opposing axioms and geometry pervade Tuckwell’s intuitive compositions.

Warmth, comfort and a subtle sense of humour too, are important elements for Tuckwell, who introduces cool greys, greens, blues and deep magenta to her typically warm palette of orange, yellow and pink. Her colours have a physical presence equal in weight to the formal, hard-edge shapes. 

Tuckwell originally studied at the Julian Ashton Art School and later graduated from the National Art School. While painting is Tuckwell’s primary practice she is also well known for her work with tapestry and recently exhibited as part of the 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial which is scheduled to tour the nation. Tuckwell has been exhibiting her work for over 30 years and has previously shown with Tim Olsen Gallery, Utopia Gallery and Damien Minton Gallery. Tuckwell’s works are held the collections of MCA Australia, Artbank, City of Sydney, New England Regional Art Museum, Tamworth Art Gallery, Bathurst Regional Gallery and Allens, Sydney.
