Louise Tuckwell: Paintings & Tapestries - Art Collector

Louise Tuckewell. I am bouncing but I cannnot fly 2016. Acrylic on board, 40 × 40 cm, $1,700. Courtesy: the artist and Gallery9, Darlinghurst.

Paintings & Tapestries comprises a new series of paintings on board accompanied by ten tapestries. Often made up of more than one individual board, each painting reveals surprises and subtle reinterpretations of Tuckwell’s distinctive abstract language. Contrastive diagonals, stripes, obtuse colour juxtapositions and subtle perspectival shifts are enhanced by the chance assembling of separate paintings into a single work.

Tuckwell has been making tapestries for over thirty years and this will be the first time they have been shown at Gallery 9. Representing an important and time consuming aspect of her practice, Tuckwell’s warm palette and simple geometries are delicately expressed in these meticulously constructed fibre works. Eight tapestries included in this show have recently returned from a tour around Australia as part of the Tamworth Textile Triennial exhibition.
