Louise De Buck - Art

Louise De Buck

My universe is beyond colourful, disturbing, sometimes aggressive yet filled with softness. Always having a feminist backbone.

Louise De Buck, based in Brussels, finds her inspiration in post-apocaliptic films from the 80's and 90's.Always one keen on travelling, she gets inspired by all the things she encounters during her visits to places like Portland, USA, Bali or Indonesia. Her musical influences are Angelo Badalamenti (Twin Peaks) or John Carpenter. She draws a lot from movie soundtracks whether it is horror movies or the more mysterious thriller kind. These help her define her emotions which transpires in her work. Her universe is beyond colourful, disturbing, sometimes aggressive yet filled with softness. Always having a feminist backbone. Her work is adaptable to all kinds of support systems

I work in acrylic and oil and I practice figurative painting whose main subject always revolves around women and their feminity in a feminist context. I really like the work of color. My biggest inspiration is the world of 80s and 90s cinema, from David Lynch to B movies. I love mysterious and a little scary atmospheres.
I think for a few days about a series or a particular image that will be like an extract from a story, then I take pictures of peoples in certain positions and then I make a collage to have a balanced composition, so I have an image very clear in my mind what the image will be at the end.
