Work from Loui JoverIllustration // Friday, 27 Sep 2013
Loui Jover's work is a mix of different mediums and color palettes expressing everything from raw, rendered portraits of females to narrative scenes. His work is classified by edgy, dripping hues and loose contours.
"Right now I like making ink drawings on adhered together sheets of vintage book paper, there is a fragility to these images that I find interesting (as if the wind may blow them away at any moment) and the hand drawn stark black lines against the intricate printed words of the book pages offer a strange fusion and depth that seems to give the images a kind of 'meaning' and back story, even though unconnected in a contrived way. I never pick the image for the pages or visa-versa they just collide as chance permits, any meaning they may have is purely created by the observer and their own imaginings. I have drawn since childhood and as other children stop at some point in their development i never did. I draw obsessively every single day filling books with ideas, cartoons and drawings."
