J. LOUIS

THE ELEGANT PROTAGONIST

 

J. Louis sees the world through an undeniably fashionable eye. His paintings of course reflect this perspective. The women in his art have a subtle confidence to them. They command the compositions, often times creating a strong sense of contrast and shape. Other times, they almost melt into the background, diminishing the boundaries between subject and surroundings. Each one bold and memorable in their own way. He achieves a true sense of self within each character that is impossible to miss. These figures are our guides to understanding the world of J. Louis.

 

 

 

In art, J. Louis approaches his creations as a true craftsman. He builds layers upon layers of texture. He creates coarse drapery paired with soft and smooth surfaces. This combination creates a sense of balance within his work. The theme of balance continues with the two two-toned backgrounds that he often uses, applied with the an effortless gradient effect. He has a habit of painting within the palette of earth tones, making his work feel rooted in naturalism. 

 

 

J. Louis lives and works in New York. He spends much of his time creating and conceptualizing the central protagonists in his paintings. Since his art goes far beyond technique and into the realm of storytelling, the focus and vision when entering the creative process is crucial. It is this attention detail that comes through when viewing his work. Often times, we see someone we know personally or someone we recognize in pop culture in his work. This is a testament to how thoroughly created his characters are. They feel like a complete identity, not just an image on a flat surface.

 

 

J. Louis's work is for the sophisticated collector, the individual who is sure of themself and can find comfort and joy being around others who are as confident and unique as they are. There is a beautiful interaction that happens between looking at his subjects and facing oneself. His work is timeless, deep and exquisitely executed.

 

 

"There is something distinctly dreamlike about these worlds, heavy with atmosphere and exaggerated gesture. The painted environments are ambiguous, flattened, serving only to frame the forms of his subjects."
