Louise Te Poele
Louise te Poele 1984, lives and works in Arnhem. Louise is a photographer-artist who tries to capture a story from a close angle. The paintings of Louise are actually self-portraits.
As a kid an untidy room was what made her happy, little animals, smelly old flowers, clutter and mess.
The objects were precious to her and she made 'impossible' things out of them. She carefully builds up compositions in her studio.
When everything is in the right place she takes a picture which is used to digitally draw the same composition. The appearance of the work lies somewhere between a 17th century still life and a modern picture.
She combines the old and the new, technology and tradition and therefor appealed to us. Her work was a real discovery, very renewing in subject and technique.
