Louise Reynolds (b.1998, Scotland) is a Contemporary visual artist whose works conceptually explore the masculinist tropes seen throughout the history painting. Painters who constructed the grand narrative works which are presented as fact were never physically present for the events they were paid by a biased commissioner to illustrate. Louise sees through her own work a revised edition of history painting, poignantly in the era of fake news, but without an actual commissioner. This is substituted with the bewildering oversaturation of news items which proliferate her online existence. Louise habitually reads the news, informing her large scale oil paintings, recontextualising prevailing and fad narratives into dystopic visions of the present and future. Louise lives and works in South Lanarkshire, Scotland.
