Louis Jeck Prestidge

Louis’ current practice centres around the appropriation of found images to produce paintings of interior and exterior landscapes.

The images are taken from various sources Such as old photos of his grand-parent’s house and stills from past films he has made.

They are re-imagined in large scale paintings that form a tableau, a grouping of objects that form a carefully constructed scene. Louis has worked in sculpture, Installation and site specific as well as digital filmmaking.

The experience of working with objects in real space has been transferred to two dimensional representation of space in which the composition can be manipulated in a more direct way.
