The 13th artist featured in our current exhibition – London Bridge Open 2 Boundaries – is Louise Sheridan who is exhibiting two artworks.

London Bridge Hotel is a former telephone exchange built in 1916 which is now surrounded by the equally stunning and evolving architecture of London Bridge. To reflect this contrast of historical and modern existing side-by-side, London Bridge Hotel’s General Manager, Julio Marques, has curated an exhibition which includes 20 different approaches to architecture using a myriad of methods including wood carving, oil paint on concrete, illustration, London’s pubs re-imagined, screen printing and painting on silk.  The theme of the exhibit coincided with The London Festival of Architecture this summer.

She says:

“These paintings are part of a series about the River Thames and London. I’ve lived beside the river throughout my life, moving down river into the heart of the city some years ago. In the paintings I try to capture the powerful flow of water, the rise and fall of the tides, the depth and strength of the currents and the changing light, colour and atmosphere of the river and the surrounding architecture. With the tide out the foreshore reveals the river’s half hidden objects and structures that display it’s history.

“Acrylic, ink, oil pastel and pencil are used on Nepalese textured and translucent hand made paper, which I first found when travelling in the Himalayas. I completed a B.A. Hons. in Fine Art, Painting at Kingston University and a Post-Graduate Course in Painting in Cyprus. Later I lived in Barcelona for a year gaining an M.A. in European Fine Art, Painting, at the Winchester School of Art.”
