DIY Fine Art Printing Service
Carmel Louise is a Melbourne based artist who completed her BA in Fine Art Photography with distinction at RMIT in 2010. Her current employment includes running a photographic workshop through St Kilda Community Housing. Her own art practice is influenced by her previous occupations in applied science and ceramics. Louise has researched and experimented with abstraction techniques: ranging from portraits to floral themes and construction sites and the resulting artwork delves beneath the surface of the subjects, to the unseen physical and psychological states. Typically, Louise’s photography is not concerned with traditional or documentary photography as her practice references her own approach, developed in conjunction with a new style of undetermined imagery: what she calls De-Constructed Photography. As a result, her work smudges the boundary between photographic reality and dreaming.
Louise has exhibited in many group exhibitions in the past 10 years and has held solo exhibitions at Archetype Gallery in Sydney, Carbon Black in Prahran and Angela Robarts-Bird Gallery at Gasworks.
Recently her art practice expanded which created a need for access to Large Format Printing. As a result she has created Melbourne’s first and only DIY Fine Art Printing Service for professional artists and photographers.
