Boo Mallinson’s paintings act as a visual diary and a way of recording her everyday walks and journeys through the landscape. Memories of a repeated walk along a known pathway, the dramatic changes of light and colour from one moment to the next, the distant horizon, the way that sights, sounds and smells come together to form a very strong sense of place – these joyous encounters with the natural world form the starting point of her paintings. Once back in the studio, the translating of ideas and memories into paint enables Boo to explore colour and abstraction and to move intuitively between the real and the imaginary.
Boo studied Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School or Art and City of Guilds school of Art in London and moved to Dorset in 2002. Her work is exhibited with the following galleries:-
Highgate Contemporary, London
The Limetree Gallery, Bristol
The Hatch Gallery, Christchurch
