Elisabeth Lalouschek’s early signature works consisted of monumental figures, superimposed onto a frenzied landscape of architectural forms and dynamic painterly expressions. The bodies, with their archetypal human presence, carried a multitude of references, from Greek mythology to dystopian film. The early 1990’s saw a major shift in Lalouschek’s practice with a focus on abstract compositions. The result being more fluid and reflective work, exploring the making of space and time.

Lalouschek graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1983. October Gallery held her first solo exhibition that same year. Between 1983 and 1997 she had studios in Mexico City, Vienna and Paris. In 1987 she joined the management team of October Gallery. Lalouschek has won numerous awards including the David Murray Landscape Award, Austrian State Scholarship, British Council Scholarship, Elizabeth Greenshield Award and the George Rowney Bicentennial Special Award. Her work has been exhibited in the UK, Mexico and the USA. Notable group exhibitions include the 214th Summer Show, Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK in 1982, and the exhibition Espacio Violento at the Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City, Mexico, in 1985. Elisabeth Lalouschek is Artistic Director of October Gallery. Her work is in collections worldwide.
