Louise Tate is an emerging artist whose practice explores historical narratives through painting. Having recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with 1st Class Honours from RMIT University, she currently works from her studio in the industrial arts precinct of Collingwood in Melbourne.
Her work often explores the overlapping of narratives within physical space, drawing on her own many-layered experiences of both womanhood and the complex histories of national identity. This is driven by an enduring consideration of the place of painting in history.
Louise has exhibited both locally and interstate, and has been the recipient of several awards and residencies. Recent work developed in Kyneton (Victoria) and funded by The Macfarlane Fund, juxtaposes imagery of historic colonial architecture, ancient Greek monuments and the rugged landscape of the Macedon region. She will be developing a new body of work as artist in residence at the NARS Foundation in New York in 2019.
