Lou Balsamine grew up in Switzerland and lived across several continents before becoming an Australian citizen.
She was always a highly visual person, even as a child, when she would spend many moments absorbing views of her native Swiss countryside.
Lou's work explores our connection with nature by distilling the elements of our natural surroundings into abstract works.
The colour palettes are suggestive of Australian landscapes end ecosystems, and compositions aim to capture the paradox between a perpetual longing for closeness with nature whilst being confined to an urban environment.
