Boo Mallinson

My approach to painting is less about rules and techniques and more about rediscovering a sense of play; loosening up and learning to respond freely and fearlessly. Experimental, fun, intuitive, gestural, process-focused.

Attending Byam Shaw School of Art and City & Guilds in the 1980s, Boo moved to Dorset in 2002 where she discovered her love for landscape painting; a style and approach which has evolved slowly over the years. Boo is interested in translating ambiguous images from the landscape into new compositions using colour and abstraction – moving intuitively between representational and imaginary image making. Her work is grounded in the exploration and response of being present within the landscape.

Boo has painted professionally for many years and regularly exhibits her work in galleries such as Lime Tree Gallery in Bristol, Morgans in Falmouth, Hatch Gallery, Christchurch, Highgate Contemporary in London and Nadia Waterfield Fine Art in Hampshire, amongst other places.
