Claudia Boese


I am inspired and guided by the painterly process and its relation to abstraction, and feel passionate about engaging with the subject of borders, edges and peripheries through the handling of paint. Hence I am drawn to regions which could be described as borderlands, geographically and psychologically and which also have been rendered throughout history by artists. My work is process driven and deeply shaped by its relationship to daily life and a passion for history. read full statement
