From December 5th The Portico Gallery will be exhibiting a string installation in the main hall by Louisa Loizeau.
A word from the artist:
“My pieces are influenced by the surrounding architecture; therefore I have generally tried to findas varied and unusual locations as possible. I am interested in the effect that light and location have on the material and the effect that the material has on light and location. I employ string as a medium because of its delicacy. It allows me to make work that takes of an ephemeral and transient quality that reflects the space in which it is situated. The work can appear solid but in fact it is the transparency that allows me to make pieces on a grand scale without them ever dominating or imposing. ”
The gallery will be open to the public for viewing of this new art installation from Tuesday to Thursday 10am-5pm from December the 5th and late viewing on Thursday until 9pm.
