Carmel Louise is a Melbourne based artist who completed her BA in Fine Art Photography at RMIT with distinction in 2010. Her current work includes running a photographic workshop through St Kilda Community Housing. Her own art practice is influenced by her previous occupations in applied science and ceramics. With an inquisitive mind, Louise has researched and experimented with abstraction techniques: ranging from portraits to floral themes and construction sites. The artist's work delves beneath the surface of her subjects to the unseen physical and psychological states. Typically, Louise’s photography is not concerned with the traditional or documentary notion of photography as her practice references her approach, developed in conjunction with a new style of undetermined imagery: what she calls de-constructed photography. As a result of this approach, her work smudges the boundary between reality and dreaming.
