Louise Frith is a Sydney-based artist specialising in oil painting of Australian landscapes and contemporary still life. In 2019 Louise was selected as a finalist in the Hawkesbury Art Prize and exhibited at the White Rhino gallery. Louise has previously been Highly Commended in the North Sydney Art Prize, selected for the Hornsby Art Prize, exhibited at the Ewart Gallery and studied Fine Art at Meadowbank TAFE.
As an oil painter, Louise’s work seeks to encapsulate her experience in the landscape. In 2019 a move from her long-time family home has prompted Louise to consider the meaning of home, with works focusing on the objects and environment that provide a feeling of connection. Louise works en plein air and has a studio practice. Recent experimentation with a variety of limited palettes has led to a sense of cohesion and allowed atmosphere and light to play a larger role in her works.
