ABOUT THE WORK
Louisa Chircop's work investigates and examines the human condition. She sifts her psyche and responds emotionally to the world around her. Chircop's inspiration comes from a variety of sources as she works across diverse mediums and approaches interacting with Art History and Culture. Using her subconscious to discover her subterranean voice, she brings connections between the personal and universal, life and existential themes. Her images appear as psychic montages and troves of ambiguity and enigma, making visible the intimate and elusive qualities of the shape of her thinking and the fragile ever changing world in which we live.
