Louise Hayward at Southbank Printmakers
We welcome Louise Hayward's exhibition, 'Blocks, Slabs and Towers', prints of London housing which can be seen at the Gallery from Monday 8th December for 2 weeks.
The Kipling Estate
Hayward is a London-based printmaker. She studied BA (Hons) Fine Art/
Painting at Wimbledon School of Art, followed by MA Printmaking at Camberwell
College of Arts. Louise is a member of Southbank Printmakers, the Society
of Wood Engravers (SWE) and a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers
(RE). Louise creates her prints by using engraving and lino-cutting tools
on relief surfaces including plastic plates, wood and lino.
On Sultan Street
has exhibited widely in group exhibitions including the Summer Exhibition at
the Royal Academy of Arts, the Society of Wood Engravers Annual Exhibition and
the London Original Print Fair. Her work is held at the Ashmolean
Museum, Oxford, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and in many private
collections. Earlier this year, Louise and
her work appeared briefly in the BBC4 programme ‘Bunkers, Brutalism and
Bloodymindedness: Concrete Poetry with Jonathan Meades’.
work features types of post-war housing which are very much part of the texture
of inner London, where I have always lived. I am interested in the
individuality of these buildings in terms of their design, structure and
sculptural qualities. This kind of architecture has become negatively
associated with the welfare state and social decay while the buildings
themselves often have a powerful, enigmatic presence in the city. They also
have a strong connection to my memories of growing up in London in the1960s and

We feel incredibly lucky to be hosting this meaningful work and would love to share it with you. Any one of Louise's works would make a thoughtful gift this Christmas. Every print is produced by hand and is therefore unique.
Visit us Monday to Friday and Sunday: 11.30 – 5pm. Saturdays 10.00 – 7.00pm
