The Muse Gallery presents Encounters, the combined voices of four women painters; portraying their visual concerns
with nature, identity and the environment.
A shared fascination with the aqueous forms of our planet is manifest in these new works by Claudia Boese, Jane Frederick, Gosia
Lapsa-Malawska and Mary Romer.
Water gushes from elaborate Baroque fountains, surges across the skies in tumultuous cloud for-
mations, or lies in still pools reflecting trees, branches and vegetation. Shadowy figures appear in mysterious landscapes, conjuring
up emotions that fill and colour the distance between artist and viewer, portraying a sense of our ephemera on earth.
The fluidity of painted surfaces has been drawn from diverse cultural influences. Informed by the simplicity and subtlety at the core of Japanese aesthetics in the case of Gosia Lapsa-Malawska.
Jane Frederick draws on multiple disciplines, dissolving digitised images into the liquid materiality of paint.
Mary Romer has used the Covid isolation to experiment. The fusion of pigment and waterpooling on the surface has created veils
and skeins of tinted colour, expressing sensations of light, vapour and mist, in the cloud-skies above.
Claudia Boese’s visceral works are shaped through the manipulation of painting materials themselves.
