Louisa Gagliardi


    Louisa Gagliardi (b. 1989) lives and works in Zurich. She graduated from Graphic Design major of Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Louisa draws freely from the codes of painting as well as contemporary graphic design and advertising in order to rethink questions of figure and ground, flatness and depth. Created initially as fluid digital images, her works are printed on vinyl and then intervened upon with a gel medium that lends a texture that could be read as ghostly impressions of painterly marks.
