    Biography

    Boulton’s paintings are memento mori of flora, painted from memory and imbued with moods and emotions from her own existence and from the fleeting passing of others. Boulton uses flowers as a form through which to explore the effects of the passage of time and the transience of life.

    Images of distant arrangements are sourced through the Internet late at night and committed to memory in the no man’s land between being awake and asleep. The following day she recalls these bouquets and paints them wilting and often overlaid often on older paintings creating an archaeology.

    This semi conscious sketchbook becomes paintings charged with atmosphere.  What was floral suggests figuration whilst not describing specific forms.  As Boulton works through her active and additive process traces of disembodied imagery come to the surface like bodies in a swamp, dissolving the ephemeral static forms with visceral lines and tonal yet expressive colour.
