2013 — Acrylic paint on paper, 11 x 15 : $450.00
Louise Mould has been painting since her formative years. While the landscape features most prominently in her work, it is a landscape of suggestion, rather than a faithful figurative rendering; it is a landscape of fiction and abstraction. Major influences on her work have been the Canadian landscape, the tropical forest of the Congo and the land of the Mediterranean/Middle East. Born in Exeter, Ontario, she holds degrees from the University of Prince Edward Island and McGill University in Montreal. She studied art for two years at the Université du Québec à Trois Rivières. She lived for four years in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Africa in the early 1980s when the country was called Zaire. From 1984-2004 she lived in Haifa, Israel where she was, among other things, director of the Bahá’í World Centre Library from 1994-2004. She is currently living in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
