Interview with Louise Cattrell

Interview: Louise Cattrell

Louise Cattrell: Another Place
71 Blandford Street, London, W1
Presented by Payne Shurvell
15 April – 16 May 2015 

Originally from Glasgow, Louise Cattrell likes to travel. She has had artist residencies all over the world, in places as diverse as Switzerland, Bulgaria, America, Sri Lanka and the Australian desert. The landscapes that she paints – in oil, but weakened with turpentine to the point of looking almost like watercolour – are from memory and often end up as an amalgamation of different places. Some of her canvases are large, but she also challenges herself to work on a smaller scale, capturing and containing the vast expanses of the sea, the sky and the mountains within the frame.
