About the art
Louise Campion is fascinated by the corporate world. Its specific aesthetic, mindset and mannerisms, display an appeal she aspires to understand and question. Through her series of paintings « Wondering if men in suits turn me on or piss me off », she explores the unwritten rules of the extremely codified office environment, while simultaneously trying to comprehend the motivations driving its players. Campion is particularly intrigued by their conception of priorities and their relationship to the notion of authority. She focuses the energy of her compositions on the portrayal of power and charisma through the body language of her figures —especially in the bust, the position of the shoulders, and the gesture of the hands, creating then an atmosphere of strength in her images which she accentuates with the use of bright and contrasting colour pairings. In this series, Campion investigates the aesthetic of the western corporate world and its singular vision of reality, observing and questioning the attractive value of greed.
