Louisa Antico. Born Sydney Australia.


Louisa’s  art practice spans painting, etching, drawing, sculpture and photo media. Her work is self-referential and multi-layered, existing in its own right with its own particular voice, while at the same time drawing upon the richness of the art historical tradition. In this sense her work is intellectually rigorous as well as aesthetically strong and challenging. She responds to evocative and symbolic imagery, dramatic contrasts of light and dark and transient moments, and is influenced by what she believes to be meaningful and beautiful.

Working simultaneously across different mediums helps her to find new ways of expressing her thoughts and emotions; she believes this method is “the driving force behind my work. I’ve always been challenged and curious about working in different materials and because I work in series, I’m able to stretch my thoughts and develop and explore forms, concepts and colours”.

Her work has been acquired through competitions and exhibitions for public and private collections in Australia and overseas. Her self portrait “That Special Place was Highly Commended in the 2009 Portia Geach Memorial Award.

 Portia Geach Memorial Award 2009 Judges comment :

“Louisa Antico was a strong contender with her jewel-like painting that literally depicts the artist in the womb of a burgeoning nature. The lush colour and organic composition graphically illustrates Ludwig Wittgenstein's statement "I am my world".
