Jo Louca

Primarily a landscape painter, concentrating particularly on the elemental power of light, atmosphere and the mood of an area. Using the time-honoured traditional method of glazed oil paint, which best utilizes the paintís translucent qualities to build up a subtle depth of colour. Though a very lengthy process, it allows the paintings to glow with light. A technique employed by the old masters. Mine is a contemplative, intuitive approach, celebrating the sublime beauty of light itself, an attempt to portray the essence of the land rather than a figurative representation of it. Frequently the initial inspiration for paintings comes simply from gazing up at a light-filled canopy. Although I intend a specific reading for each painting I purposefully make the works non-prescriptive, allowing the viewer to interpret each work in their own way. Everyone seeing something different.
