Louise Isackson is a visual artist exploring her painting with images that represent the vibrations of sound through the application of painterly colour on canvas. Louise’s paintings investigate parallel languages and the essence of her combined passion of colour (through paint) and music. Theoretically, Isackson’s paintings occupy the space between colour sensation and the sonic expressions of visual forms. Her paintings and the compositional structure of image-making have a direct reference to her experiences as a professional musician.
With intensely rich and luminous colour, Louise Isackson paints with emotive intent while influenced by her combined passions: Colour and Music. Often hovering between abstraction and realism, Louise Isackson paints with vibrant colour and shimmering brushstrokes to express her passion for sound/colour correlation.
Isackson draws inspiration from Kandinski’s The Spiritual in Art colour correlation theories. She interprets the sensory impact of colour by combining shimmering brush stroke effects with elusive abstract forms. The result is a collision of sound and sight that brings to life the raw emotional experience of music, only splashed across the canvas.
“I have a keen interest in the musicality of colour, and explore this constantly as I’m painting. My titles are often referring to notes, tonal keys, tempo, music theory and movements. What I’m most inspired to create in my paintings is translating the emotion of sound into colour, form and light. My process involves painting while listening, developing an intuition for the corresponding colours, building up layers of shapes, marks and tones in structural composition that visualise a resonance similar to musical vibration”.
Louise Isackson began her career as a graphic designer to then shift her visual focus to Fine Art painting by completing her degree at the Queensland College of Art (QCA) Griffith University in 1993. She showed her work in exhibitions with many local Brisbane galleries to then move into the corporate world of design and creative advertising. Louise also has a history of performing in Jazz and has performed interstate within Australia, and overseas in Japan and New York. She completed a Master’s Degree (MCA) in 2016: QUT in the Creative Industries.
