Louise Camille Fenne was born in Copenhagen, Denmark to a Danish Father and English mother. As a result, her early years and schooling were spent in both Denmark and England.
Louise went on to study drawing in Aix-en Provence, France and The Glyptotek, Copenhagen, before enrolling at The Florence Academy of Art in 1995. At this time, Louise was intrigued by the possibility of studying traditional painting and drawing techniques. While at the Academy, Fenne studied cast and figure drawing until moving to Amsterdam in 1997, and later Lucca , Italy.
“I paint mainly portraits, still lifes and interiors. My inclination to paint is driven primarily by the desire to make a visual statement rather than an intellectual one. Therefore my subjects tend only to be the means to a greater aesthetic end. The paintings are observations made over time, in layers, that I hope finally result in a harmony, giving the painting its own life and allowing it to speak for itself.”
“I think my recent work has been greatly inspired by spending much of my time in Florence , Italy. Going back to the beginning, so to speak, and viewing the masterpieces of the Renaissance with the eyes of a more experienced painter, has consequently led to a desire to move beyond the strictly realistic.”
Louise Camille Fenne's paintings hang in prominent collections world-wide. It is with tremendous delight that we announce her participation in the gallery.
