Louisa often considers place and its meaning to an individual in her work. Her interpretations of terrestrial and celestial environments focus on the connection between these two spaces. Representations of mapping, symbols of nature , sacred geometry, as well as more abstract concepts about our individual finite existence and our relationship with home, find their way into the work.
At the moment Louisa is working with a series of geometric forms called the Platonic Solids and polyhedral variations of these. Plato suggested that each one of these three-dimensional, regular forms represented an element of the earth: fire, earth, water, air and the fifth element, aether. A recurring theme in her work, aether was once thought to relate to the space beyond our planet or the celestial sphere.
