Luisa’s paintings form ethereal scenes where personally codified symbols morph and find harmony. She employs intuition and improvisation to develop abstract compositions until eventually an internal logic unfolds. There is a synthesis that forms between intuitive painting and the way she moves through feelings, and this makes painting an important tool for processing love, grief, awe, and other murkier or ineffable states of being. Through an open-ended and vulnerable approach to painting, Luisa hopes to open up pathways of subjective understanding outside of language that offer alternative ways of being in and processing the world, and navigating the mysterious and uncertain terrain of lived experience.

Luisa is the co-founder/co-director of Pig Melon and a founding member of Sob, a shared creative working space where she currently resides. She is represented by sweet pea an art gallery in Boorloo (Perth) on Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar. | @luisahansal
