Louise Laffaille

French and Swiss, the artist Louise Laffaille works and lives between New York and Paris. Her studio is located in East Harlem.

Influenced by Turner “the painter of light”, her water color on paper aim to stirringly and truthfully measure the moods of Nature.

Louise Laffaille's landscapes are often observed from a certain distance, which reveals her fascination for a natural world unmastered by man.

Working with her memories, she allows her emotions to lead the way rather than following and exact picture, leaving a space for herself and the viewer wondering, and imagining.

Her water color on paper can often contain more than 50 layers of paint, which gives the render of depth.Her recent exploration of monotype and water color has also lead her to more direct and abstract gestures.

Her work has been shown in New York, recently at Art 345, Noho gallery, and a First Street Gallery where she won the National Jury Competition in 2018.In France she won the artist residency at the Castle of La Napoule where her work was exhibited. She is represented by the gallery Amelie Maison d'Art, Paris 9e, and Francoise Durst, Paris 16e.
