Taxonomy Series

About this project

This body of work draws inspiration from the aesthetics of taxonomy, archive, scientific research, and medical apparatus. Recent collections explore this theme through sequences of multiple free-blown and solid sculpted objects in which mysterious life forms appear suspended in a richly-coloured medium. For recent collections Louis has produced a series that contain intricate structures indicative of mathematical models. While intellectually and technically rigorous, the work is also intriguing.
