Where the previous work of Louise te Poele was made in the spirit of the 17th century Dutch masters of the still life, these new pieces are futuristic flower arrangements bathing in bright neon lights.
She orchestrates wondrous compositions of found objects that playfully disrupt suggestions of movement, scale and vanitas.
A defining factor in the artistic practice of Louise te Poele is the idea of anachronism. She believes that many ideas and systems exist alongside, or even in stark contrast with the visual language of an often oppressive zeitgeist.
Her subject matter isn't fashionable or bound to trends. Subjects range from Dutch farmers to flower arrangements and abstract compositions constructed from packing materials. In other words, she stays close to her daily surroundings. Within these well-known materials she searches for an unexpected beauty of invention.
Her personal investment in the subjects gives her the intimate knowledge and trust that is necessary to achieve free and intuitive creation.
