(text by Tania di Brita)
This series Holidays should transmit a light-hearted, nice and happy feeling. Remembering only the most amazing adventures. From the pre-digital era we all remember the infamous holiday postcards. Everywhere in the world, whether in metropolises or in small villages some- where in the pampas, there were postcards. Always in a similar format, postcards show a ge- neric to slightly embellished view of the visited environment. Full of curiosity one also wonders what is written on the back of the postcard?

The sights and places portrayed by Louane are deeply linked to his own experiences, emotions and relations. That is why he has given each of the art works in this series a personal message on the back. Louane paints what means something to him. His creativity is, where his heart is.

The aesthetic character of Louane’s works is expressionistic and free in the use of colour. The depicted architectural motifs and landscapes seem almost sacral. The symmetry as well as the mosaic-like and detailed colour fields reinforce this appearance. The forms and fields are geo- metric, precise yet slightly naive. The painting appears flat and bold, with little depth. Striking colour contrasts are complemented by a prevailing renunciation of perspective and shading. Due to the unrealistic colouring the art works appear surreal.
