Louise Mertens

Louise's work is characterized by a game of seduction: precisely by hiding certain parts, she seeks to intrigue her audience. Stepping into dialogue with fashion images through hiding and altering parts of her characters’ faces. She finds inspiration in Japanese art, looking especially for a certain sophistication. There is a simplicity in the contours, in the minimalism of the lines, in its eye for detail. “The subtle but important details force you to look with more patience." Louise and photographer Oona Smet established XXSOME in 2014. This brand new cooperation between the two fashion inspired artists results in avantgarde, yet sensual visuals. www.xxsome.com
