One to Watch

Louise Aldridge

Louise Aldridge is an emerging artist from the UK. The human form dominates her work, exploring the relationship between the figure and the space around it. “In essence,” she says, “painting for me is just this: space and light occupied by human presence.” She cites as influences Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and Cecily Brown, for the different ways in which they re-invented figurative art.
