"In my paintings, I pull from extremes, bold and soft, saturated and muted colors, movement and stillness. The images fade among positive and negative spaces. It is between these two extremes that I find a special place where the abstract and the real meet. By simplifying selected details, I strive to give an impression of the entire atmosphere of a given space, not just its separate elements. this hopefully stirs and emotionally visceral response with stays with the viewer, encouraging them to see the world around them in a new way." - KC Collins
Louis Poole’s work is instantly recognizable in the Virginia Art Scene. The bold Shotgun Shacks, Beach Houses, and Bungalows with the extended draft lines and sometimes painted boarder have been the center of Louis’s wheelhouse for years.
This exhibit, Louis will revisit a few of his favorite homes and color them with a new perspective much like a songwriter revamps a tune from their back catalog. He also is exhibiting new houses from his imagination and travels up and down the east coast and the gulf coast.
