Introducing The Serenade collection by Louise Dear

Posted by Nicky Kingston in Inspiration | 6 months ago 4 min read

We speak with renowned artist Louise Dear about the inspiration behind the new bathroom collection based on her painting “The Serenade”.

We’re proud to be working in collaboration with Louise Dear, one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary artists, to develop a fabulous bathroom collection based on some of Louise’s most distinguished paintings.

Famous for her bright and vibrant works, which blend bold colours and seductive subjects with a whole range of materials and techniques, Louise has developed quite the following of fans and collectors over the years.

The Serenade: the inspiration

The Serenade is one of Louise’s most famous paintings and the inspiration behind The Serenade bathroom collection.

Carrying on from our first interview, where we chatted about her famous painting Kiss Kiss Bam Bam, we chatted with Louise, to discover more about the inspiration behind The Serenade.

You mentioned you were inspired by the sunrise. Please tell us more...

I LOVE the sunrise and try to see it most days wherever I am and particularly when rising and reflecting over water. It simply fills me with warmth and joy, representing a new dawning of a new day and the excitement of unknown adventures to come.

Many years ago, I spent time in Varanasi in India. One day I was up before dawn to take a boat trip along The Ganges and watch the sunrise over this spiritual capital. It was sensational. I was young and innocent and the emotion and sentiment I felt in this ancient sacred land in the golden glowing dawn, has stayed with me always. I often use this symbol to portray the peace and harmony I felt and try to carry with me always.

Are there features in the artwork that you are particularly fond of? If so, what are they and why did you incorporate them?

The Serenade is a psalm, a love song to motherhood, family, kinship and love. There are 7 fluttering angels each one representing a child in my family, each one portraying their unique characteristics whether it be diving bravely into the unknown, gazing wondrously at the sublime beauty of nature, charming one with their natural alluring nature and others. All unique in their fascinating and appealing way. The main figure is based on my beautiful and enchanting sister-in-law, the newest mother in our brood. A woman I have much respect for and from whom I have learnt so much.


The Serenade collection

The beautiful colours used to create The Serenade lend themselves perfectly to a bold and vibrant bathroom design. With the full length wall panel, depicting the painting itself, you can form the basis of an exciting ensuite or beautiful family bathroom.

For a shower that packs plenty of power, this fabulous rectangular enclosure comes complete with The Serenade wall panel, plus your choice of colour-matched wall panel from the Artist Collection.

For a cheerful, summer-drenched look, why not opt for the yellow wall panel instead? The offset quadrant enclosure gives you extra room in which to shower, whilst the sliding doors provide easy and unobtrusive access.
