Part of the New Light Prize Exhibition 2020
Louisa Boyd's work considers place and its meaning to the individual. Representations of mapping, symbols of nature and the geometry that underpins the fabric of the world all feature in her pieces. While honoring traditional techniques such as marbling and acid etching she is innovative in their uses, combining mark-making and an inventive approach to create pieces which often have three-dimensional qualities.
Louisa has worked as an artist exhibiting both nationally and internationally since graduating in 2001. She has been shortlisted for the John Ruskin Prize in 2017, and both the Flourish Award and New Light Prize in 2020 as well as exhibiting on three different occasions at the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition.
