Abandoned places - There is beauty in looking
 
Images of heads – and of women predominantly – stem from Marie-Louise's interest in early Florentine portraiture. Inspiration has been drawn from the works of Baldvinetti, Ghirlandaio, Pisano, and Piero dello Francesco whose subjects sometimes seem otherworldly in their awkward beauty; and yet, we see these faces all around us in our world; even if we do not immediately see that they are beautiful.
Backgrounds and backdrops in those Florentine portraits were often formal interiors, or expansive Tuscan landscapes; Marie-Louise chooses to render these more simply; using abstractions inspired by the colours and tones of Gustav Klimt's later works.
