Ormond Studios are pleased to present In-between Worlds, a solo exhibition of work by artist Louise Peat, held in conjunction with Bealtaine Festival 2017.
Louise Peat’s current body of work examines how the development of the online social world is altering identity and social behaviour. She focuses on communication and alludes to the way people today keep in touch by interacting through a screen – via social media and internet networks trying to perpetuate social bonds, relations and intimacy. The artist believes that simultaneously there is a disconnect occurring, and that what is missing with most forms of modern communication is emotional exchange. She expressly asks – are we losing meaningful connection within the process?
This new body of work includes computer-generated drawings constructed in virtual spaces, scanned paintings and screen shots, which she has transformed through the medium of printmaking into a tactile print series.
