Kurofune takes its name from the word meaning ‘blackships’ in Japanese – a symbol of the coming out of isolation, and the name given to Western vessels arriving in Japan in the 16th and 19th centuries.

Saoku – was the policy of isolation that Japan embarked on during this time, when no foreigner could enter and nor could any Japanese leave – or face a penalty of death, this continued for many years.

It is this two-fold idea of cutting oneself off from the rest of the world, the benefits and disadvantages of isolation, and also philosophical ideas of The Self and its isolation from The Other, that sparked the exploration of woven brush marks in Louis latest body of work. He paints vast densely packed canvases, that pulse with a rhythmic energy that instantly awaken an emotional response. His paintings captivate you.
