J Louis deploys a polished technique to paint portraits of young, beautiful women.  His cast of characters throws dynamic shapes, posing like fashion models.

Well-versed in the art of self-presentation, they offer themselves up to our gaze, confident in the knowledge of our eager appreciation.

For J Louis the silhouette is all.  It is a dynamic driver of composition.  Isolated against the picture plane which is absent of any reference or context, the figures inhabit an aesthetic void, a clear space in which the viewer’s attention is fully focused on the body and force of personality.  

The painter creates a clear arena for a pared-down encounter. Renderings of heads, hands, feet punctuate and focus his compositions.  Attuned to the elegantly seductive, he shows us the glossy texture of hair, the moist glistening of an eye, the translucent gleam of a highlighted cheekbone.
