Boo Mallinson’s paintings are inspired by her Dorset surroundings and her intimacy with the landscape. She responds to feelings, experiences and observations of the terrain and the elements. Her work is an emotional, personal expression.
She studied Fine Art at The Byam Shaw and City & Guilds School of Art in London then moved to Dorset 14 years ago. Her paintings act as a visual diary of her everyday walks and journeys through the landscape, inviting others to share her experiences through her gentle abstract marks. Boo works in a number of mediums including, oil, acrylic, charcoal, ink and pastel. Paintings vary in size from large canvases to smaller more intimate works on paper.
Boo begins with initial charcoal drawings which form the starting point for her paintings; they then evolve in an organic and intuitive way once back in the studio. Using shape, line, colour and above all light, she allows the viewer the freedom to put their own interpretation into the painting.
