Louisa Marriott

With an interest in socio-political issues and current affairs, Louisa Marriott’s work responds to the environment around her, aiming to engage the viewer with issues in today’s society. Due to the continuously changing political climate and new topics that come to her attention every day, her practice is fully dependent on the concept of a work, showing clear links to context and materiality. Through the use of print, textiles, painting and text, Marriott creates a visual language that exists both inside and outside of the traditional white cube gallery space. Using her practice as a form of expression and a tool for her to process the ongoing events around her, Marriott’s practice is continuously changing and adapting. Through research and an awareness of current issues, her previous work has explored the likes of the Grenfell fire, Donald Trump’s presidency and the refugee crisis. With a key interest in Brexit for the past few years, her current creative stance and degree show piece depict the confusion and chaotic nature of the mess the UK faces, using her art to prompt discussion and provoke action that leads to change.
