Louise Giovanelli, A Throw to the Side
A young painter labelled ‘one to watch’ by Saatchi Art has found inspiration in Warrington Museum & Art Gallery’s collection for a new exhibition.
Louise Giovanelli, 24, has attracted huge interest in her work since studying fine art at Manchester School of Art, for which she was awarded a first degree.
Her latest project is A Throw to the Side, a new collection of haunting yet beautiful work which explores the sensorial possibilities of paint.
Using the museum and art gallery’s collection as a starting point, Giovanelli has reconsidered and reconfigured certain pieces to create new content with alternative narratives.
Her starting point was the work of John Warrington Wood, a sculptor of mythological and biblical subjects with an interesting connection to both Warrington and Rome.
