Personal profile

Scholarly biography

Louise is a Principal Lecturer and Inclusive Practice Partner co-Lead for the School of Art and Media. This involves working closely with students and colleagues to diversify and de-colonise the art and design curriculum. She currently works within the subject area of Visual Communication and was formerly the course leader for MA Graphic Design. 

Louise is an artist and independent creative director, and has recently co-authored a book called Hardcore; The Cinematic World of Pulp, through Thames & Hudson. Louise has produced and curated a series of independent art projects, often funded by the Arts Council, which have been shown at events and galleries such as: the Jerwood Gallery, Brighton Cinecity Film festival, Big Screen and film Gallery (Latitude Festival), Loop Video Art Festival, Liverpool Biennale, Whitstable Biennale, and the ICA in London. 

Louise's current practice-based research focuses on the testing of processes, materials and systems to re-engage with the physicality of making and to establish a regular studio practice. Former work parodies the tropes of early modernist or structural film practices often by placing geometric forms with/against more personal imagery/gestures thereby operating in a feminist framework of art practice.
