Moorland sky with soft lilacs and greys presented in an off white deep cut mount. The ochre and olive green tones contrast with the cool sky and there is a lot of movement in cloud formations. The painting is built up with textural acrylic paint and glazed over in areas with thinner paint. Dry media has been added in the linear mark making on the moor.

Luisa Holden artist paints original art and is available to buy online and in our art gallery. Luisa is a York based contemporary painter who works spontaneously in a semi abstract/abstract style. Her work often features the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire, Northumberland and Cornish coastlines as well as expressive and ‘edgy’ still life. Working primarily in acrylics, mixed media (sometimes employing gold leaf), she favours a muted, unifying colour palette and enjoys the interplay of neutral tones with bright colour. Luisa loves to capture light and atmosphere, preferring to get the ‘sense’ of a picture rather than relating too much detail. Texture, sgrafitto (scratching through the wet, buttery paint)and big gestural marks are characteristic of her work, contrasting thick palette knife marks and brushstrokes with thin transparent glazes. Luisa’s work has been exhibited widely throughout Yorkshire, including solo shows at the Helmsley Arts Centre and Beningbrough Hall (National Trust) in North Yorkshire. She has exhibited with the Society of Women Artists at the Mall Galleries in London 2015, 2016 and 2020/2021 (online), the Great North Art Show, Ripon Cathedral (2015), Ferens Art Gallery, Hull (2018), LFA (Leeds Fine Artists) Showcase 2019 (Huddersfield Art Gallery) & LFA Dean Clough 2018/19). In 2020 she was invited to take part in an online exhibition with Highgate Contemporary Art Gallery entitled “Interpretations of Landscape”. In 2018 Luisa was delighted to be elected a member of Leeds Fine Artists, established 1874 which makes it one of the oldest regional arts bodies in the UK. Luisa has collections of work in the US, Sweden, Germany and Eire. To discuss any artworks by Luisa Holden's art works please email, or call 07799 535765 / 01869 338155.
