Louise Saxton’s practice centers on reconstructing detritus from the home, including the re-use of her own paintings, collections of everyday business envelopes and vintage wallpapers, discarded needlework, book illustrations and domestic porcelain. In 2006 Louise Saxton was awarded a Sir Ian Potter Cultural Trust travel grant to undertake an artist residency at Rimbun Dahan in Malaysia. Since that time her practice has engaged primarily with the reconstruction of needlework, which she regards as a “silent collaboration with the anonymous original makers.”
