Louise Laplante Art

American

Louise Laplante exhibits new drawings on collaged pages of vintage paper. Interested in blending the old world with the new, Laplante combines her original images with ephemera of the past, enticing a conversation about it’s relevancy to the present. Her compositions begin with vintage book pages, personal handwritten letters, sheet music or instruction from old guides on etiquette or science. Most recently, Laplante has opted for larger-scale work, combining multiple sheets of vintage paper to expand her unique motifs. She exhibits across the Northeast and has been shown with Carrie Haddad Gallery for more than 10 years.

Black Bird Tours Around the World (Chalk Drawing over Collaged Sheet Music)
Located in Hudson, NY
Figurative chalk drawing of grey, black, and teal clouds and birds silhouetted on collaged vintage music pages 'Black Bird Tours Around the World ' by Louise Laplante in 2022 silhouettes made with chalk on vintage collaged music pages 24 x 30 inches unframed, 27.5 x 33.5 inches in natural light wood frame with non-glare plexi Louise Laplante bridges the past and present with mixed media drawings made with figurative charcoal silhouettes juxtaposed on collaged sheets of vintage paper. Finding beauty in forgotten or discarded sheets of ephemera, Laplante uses it as a guide for playful compositions of stenciled birds in mid-flight, drifting feathers, or taxidermized deer heads in rich pastel. A final burst of wistful linework glides over the pastel forms, accentuating her subject’s movement while adding another layer of texture. In this particular work, the artist using a palette of black, grey and shades of blue and teal to compose a balanced graphic of fluffy clouds extending above a single black bird. In certain segments the stenciled images are delicately brushed over with a thin wisp of chalk which adds a delicate textured effect to the drawing. The drawing is framed with a light wood frame and has non-glare plexi glass galzing. About the artist: Interested in blending the old world with the new, mixed media artist Louise Laplante combines her original images with ephemera of the past, enticing a conversation about it’s “relevancy to the present.” Her compositions begin with vintage book pages, personal handwritten letters, sheet music, or instruction from old guides on etiquette or science. While the text itself is weighted with reference to a particular subject, the visual of the typed or handwritten words and printed illustrations establish a unique pattern. These layered backgrounds are superimposed with opaque charcoal drawings that are inspired by the themes read between the lines. Most recently, the artist has opted for larger scale work, combining multiple sheets of vintage paper to expand her unique motifs. Laplante exhibits across the Northeast and has shown with Carrie Haddad for more than ten years. Artist Statement: My work connects the texts, and ideas, in the vintage book, music or correspondence pages, with images those words evoke to comment on how the past still resonates, whether we are aware of it or not. It is informed by my love for old paper, letters, books and images, both as reminders of the past and as bits of pattern, tone, line and shape. The text on them acts as both content and visual device. With each work, I select, arrange and collage these pieces creating both a support and pattern building on it with motifs that are suggested by words on the papers. Although I often start with an agenda I always allow each work to build its own image.

An Organization of Birds: Figurative Drawing of Colorful Birds on Antique Paper
Located in Hudson, NY
Figurative chalk drawing of flying bird silhouettes in retro colors on vintage collaged book pages 'An Organization of Birds' by Louise Laplante in 2022 chalk on vintage collaged cranberry cultivation manual pages 48 x 41 inches unframed, 52 x 45 inches in natural wood frame with non-glare plexi Louise Laplante bridges the past and present with mixed media drawings made with figurative charcoal silhouettes juxtaposed on collaged sheets of vintage paper. Finding beauty in forgotten or discarded sheets of ephemera, Laplante uses it as a guide for playful compositions of stenciled birds in mid-flight, drifting feathers, or taxidermized deer heads in rich pastel. A final burst of wistful linework glides over the pastel forms, accentuating her subject’s movement while adding another layer of texture. In this particular work, the artist cleverly draws an organized formation of birds over an almanac of vintage pages of numerical data. A departure from her typical greyscale palette, the artist introduces retro shades of brick red, forest green, cadet blue, and mustard yellow. The vivid silhouettes of flying birds flutter in place and provide colorful contrast against a background of vintage papers. In certain segments the stenciled images are delicately brushed over with a thin wisp of chalk which adds a delicate textured effect to the drawing. The figurative chalk drawing is framed with a light wood frame and has non-glare plexi.

A contemporary spin on a coming of age story. Louise Laplante introduces new collages made with antique paper from found books. Each work contains a story often about women, botany, or animals that is inspired by the pages they're built upon. In the tradition of scrapbooks or memory boxes, the work is also riddled with personal references which are blurred with whitewash “the way memories are blurred by distance” and finally encased by a surface of encaustic. Laplante’s career as a head university librarian further explains her love of books and ephemera...

Sanguine drawing "Shepherdess on a Donkey" by Nicolaes Berchem
By Nicolaes Berchem
Located in Brooklyn, NY
Provenance: Mercedes von Dietrichtein, Buenos Aires. Alexander von Dietrichstein. By descendants Morritz von Diestrichstein. Nicolaes Pieterszoon Berchem (1 October 1620 – 18 February 1683) was a highly esteemed and prolific Dutch Golden Age painter of pastoral landscapes, populated with mythological or biblical figures, but also of a number of allegories and genre pieces. He was a member of the second generation of "Dutch Italianate landscape" painters. These were artists who travelled to Italy, or aspired to, in order to soak up the romanticism of the country, bringing home sketchbooks full of drawings of classical ruins and pastoral imagery. His paintings, of which he produced an immense number, (Hofstede de Groot claimed around 850, although many are misattributed), were in great demand, as were his 80 etchings and 500 drawings. His landscapes, painted in the Italian style of idealized rural scenes, with hills, mountains, cliffs and trees in a golden dawn...

Trophy ((Figurative Chalk Drawing of a Stag on Vintage Pages of Penny Magazine)
Located in Hudson, NY
Figurative chalk drawing of a black stag on vintage collaged book pages 'Trophy for the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge' by Louise Laplante in 2022 chalk on vintage collaged pages of The Penny Magazine 49 x 38 inches unframed, 53.5 x 42 inches in natural wood frame with non-glare plexi This graphic, figurative drawing in black chalk with collaged pages of The Penny Magazine was created by Louise Laplante in 2022. For this piece, she chose pages from The Penny Magazine started by Charles Knight in 1832, an illustrated publication that was released every Saturday to audiences in Great Britain. The hallmark of this magazine was the wood cut illustrations, a feature that appealed to the large portion of the audience that was still illiterate. The vivid silhouettes of one large stag dominates the foreground; a small black bird is delicately perched on one of the antlers. In certain segments the stenciled images are delicately brushed over with a thin wisp of chalk which adds a delicate textured effect to the drawing. This exquisite work is floated in a frame with blonde wood molding and acrylic glazing. About the artist: Interested in blending the old world with the new, mixed media artist Louise Laplante combines her original images with ephemera of the past, enticing a conversation about it’s “relevancy to the present.” Her compositions begin with vintage book pages, personal handwritten letters, sheet music, or instruction from old guides on etiquette or science. While the text itself is weighted with reference to a particular subject, the visual of the typed or handwritten words and printed illustrations establish a unique pattern. These layered backgrounds are superimposed with opaque charcoal drawings that are inspired by the themes read between the lines. Most recently, the artist has opted for larger scale work, combining multiple sheets of vintage paper to expand her unique motifs. Laplante exhibits across the Northeast and has shown with Carrie Haddad for more than ten years. Artist Statement: My work connects the texts, and ideas, in the vintage book...

Birds and Folk Songs (Figurative Chalk Drawing of Colorful Flying Birds)
Located in Hudson, NY
Figurative chalk drawing of sienna orange, blue, green, gray, and black birds on vintage music pages 'Birds and Folk Songs - Going Home' by Louise Laplante chalk on vintage collaged music pages 28 x 48 inches unframed, 32 x 52 inches in natural wood frame with non-glare plexi This dreamy, figurative drawing of flying birds was created by Louise Laplante in 2020. The vivid silhouettes of colorful birds are depicted against a background of early 20th century music pages as if flying in a flock. In certain segments the stenciled images are delicately brushed over with a thin wisp of chalk which adds a delicate textured effect to the drawing. The figurative animal drawing is frame with a light wood frame and has non-glare plexi. About the artist: Interested in blending the old world with the new, mixed media artist Louise Laplante combines her original images with ephemera of the past, enticing a conversation about it’s “relevancy to the present.” Her compositions begin with vintage book pages, personal handwritten letters, sheet music, or instruction from old guides on etiquette or science. While the text itself is weighted with reference to a particular subject, the visual of the typed or handwritten words and printed illustrations establish a unique pattern. These layered backgrounds are superimposed with opaque charcoal drawings that are inspired by the themes read between the lines. Most recently, the artist has opted for larger scale work, combining multiple sheets of vintage paper to expand her unique motifs. Laplante exhibits across the Northeast and has shown with Carrie Haddad for more than ten years. Artist Statement: My work connects the texts, and ideas, in the vintage book...

The work is complimented with a modern natural wood frame. Whimsical composition, gorgeous neutral palette, and uplifting imagery! About the artist: Mixed media artist, Louise Laplante, will exhibit new drawings on collaged pages of of vintage paper. Interested in blending the old world with the new, Laplante combines her original images with ephemera of the past, enticing a conversation about it’s “relevancy to the present.” Her compositions begin with vintage book pages, personal handwritten letters, sheet music, or instruction from old guides on etiquette or science.

These layered backgrounds are superimposed with opaque charcoal drawings that are inspired by the themes read between the lines. Most recently, the artist has opted for larger scale work, combining multiple sheets of vintage paper to expand her unique motifs. In the six and a half foot tall work, “Chorus”, a flock of multi-colored birds are stenciled on collaged sheets of handwritten music. They gravitate in a gloriously dynamic upward movement, illustrating their song resonating in harmonious unison. Other work is decorated with groupings of blue whales, billowy clouds, or gentlemen’s hats, while some selections are riddled with personal references that are blurred with whitewash. Laplante exhibits across the Northeast and has shown with Carrie Haddad for more than ten years.

Winter Songs, Rabbits and Birds (Graphic Collage on Vintage Paper)
Located in Hudson, NY
30 x 35 inches, unframed chalk on vintage collaged sheet music This work on paper is being offered by Carrie Haddad Gallery, located in Hudson, NY Unique collage featuring contemporary Black and white graphic depictions of rabbits and birds in a bird cage on vintage sheet music. Louise Laplante introduces new collages made with antique paper from found books. Each work contains a story often about women, botany, or animals that is inspired by the pages they're built upon. In the tradition of scrapbooks or memory boxes, the work is also riddled with personal references which are blurred with whitewash “the way memories are blurred by distance” and finally encased by a surface of encaustic. Laplante’s career as a head university librarian further explains her love of books and ephemera.
