Louise Blyton is a reductive artist exploring the romance of raw linen and dry pigment. 

Her work is often in the form of shaped canvases or three dimensional wall sculptures. 

Experimenting with colour, light and form, she explores the fragility of beauty through 

subtle shifts of colour in layers. The structure of Blyton’s work appears strong and bold, 

yet it is fragile and reveals evidence of the hand and thus invites a quiet meditation be- 

tween viewer and work.

Blyton was born in Melbourne and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art at RMIT 

University in 1988. She has exhibited widely in numerous group exhibitions and has also 

curated group shows. She has had over 17 solo exhibitions, has lived and worked in France 

and England and held Residency at Redgate Studio in Beijing, China, Point B studio Williamsburg NYC USA,

and Factory 49 Pop Up in Paris France.

Her work is held in private collections in Australia, , England, France, Portugal, China and the USA.
