BIO

Model and artist Louise Donegan creates biomorphic compositions with a composition of digital and analog techniques. Says the artist of her work, “I revel in the beauty of nature’s engineering and am drawn to biological forms like skeletons, wings, and rock formations. My intention is to project beauty by employing the idea that small parts comprise a larger whole, the totality of which is more than the sum of its parts. I enjoy playing with congruence in texture, color, and shape of objects that would never normally be found together. I incorporate old, unexposed Polaroid film. Using a mark making technique akin to painting, I manipulate the pigments before they have set. The results echo their neighboring biological images in my works.” Donegan has shown her works at Salomon Contemporary in New York among other venues.
