Cove Park has invited the Glasgow-based visual artist Louise Hopkins to take part in this year’s summer programme. This residency will support the development of a new project and enable Louise to focus upon the research and studio work required to take this to the next stage.
Louise makes paintings and drawings directly onto surfaces that already contain information; world maps, patterned furnishing fabric, comics, catalogue pages, magazine pages, photographs, folded or crumpled paper and sheet music. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art’s MFA course in 1994, she has presented her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
