About The Artwork

I have returned to the CITY WALL series. These works are inspired by my life in the city. I am fascinated by the adjoining walls that remain after buildings are demolished. There are always very interesting bits of the interior walls of the torn down buildings. I really like when bits of wallpaper remain. The random demarcation between all the previous layers of the wall are very inspiring. These images have been a part of my life for over 40 years. In this painting, I used paper that I had colored by using a squeegee on paper. I then used the various paper swatches to create the composition. The paper is mounted to 1/4 inch birch plywood by way of acrylic medium. The plywood is backed by 1/4" MDO strips, and then placed into an artist built shadowbox frame of 11/2" x 1/8" pine strips painted black. Securely wired and ready to hang.

Louis is a Philadelphia, PA based artist and musician. "There is the idea of what a painting could be, then there is what happens while making the painting." "In my current work I employ a process driven call & response approach with the aesthetic goal of balancing shifting degrees of chaos and potential through the orchestration of organic and geometric structures. I am inspired by diverse sources: patterns (natural & man-made), sound waves, cycles, waves, frequencies, urban decay, architectural artifacts, geometry, geology, astronomy, tribal & corporate symbols, icons, technology and commercial graphics. By making art, I endeavor to reveal the mystery that is common to them. I am drawn to the history of things; to the possibility of different outcomes based on combinations of planned decisions and random events. I am intrigued with how small, repetitive actions consistently applied over the course of time, create complex systems that are greater than the sum of their parts. My approach is exploratory, reactionary and cathartic. I start with a concept, and follow the cues that the painting process gives me, often using unpredictable means to apply and remove paint, recycling, re-purposing and repositioning. Some decisions are planned, some are not. The result is the consequence of my reactions to previous actions. This process leads to reinvention and discovery, erosion and re assemblage; a play of deliberation and chance." His paintings and commissions are included in many private collections.
