Artists

Louise Almon

Louise Almon has lived her life as an artist for the past four decades. She was trained at the art schools of Rhodes- and Cape Town University, where she graduated as a Bachelor of Arts in 1981. For the past two years Lou has lived in Kalk Bay, Cape Town. Working from her home studio, absorbing the colour and air of the ocean. Lou lived and worked in the Eastern Cape from 1980 - 2000 where she honed her skills in the company of George Pemba, whom she worked with intimately from the mid-eighties till the end of the nineties. Her experience as an artist was further enriched by becoming a founding member of the Imvaba Arts Association, a non-profit organisation that sought to promote black artists and make their work accessible to the art market. She has completed a two-month residency at the Cite International des Arts in Paris and produces artworks primarily in the form of multi-layered ink mono-prints and oil paintings. Her subject matter is taken from her immediate surroundings, whether it’s figures on the street outside her studio or a model whom she shares with her colleagues.
