Louise Dorph (born 1978) lives and works in Stockholm. She graduated from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm in 2008.

The very same year Anders Olofsson, editor at Konsten.net wrote on her first solo exhibition with the gallery:

There is a fundamental strong sense of figuration, however Dorph pursue the reduction at such length her images often approach the purely abstract, a particular pseudo realistic ‘colour-filed’ painting. The perspective is shallow, in a away in which Clement Greenberg would have appreciated. The light is consequently evenly applied; one senses a use of Photoshop in the background. But Louise Dorph does not engage with plays of technique and art history. Her images strive to go beyond reality and to seek out the very foundations of our vision.

Dorph has developed her personal language and presents fifteen new paintings in this exhibition.
