Encounters: Claudia Boese, Jane Frederick, Gosia Łapsa-Malawska, Mary Romer
10-27 June 2021
The Muse Gallery presents Encounters, the combined voices of four women painters; four voices 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 Łapsa-Malawska and Mary Romer.
Water gushes from elaborate Baroque fountains, surges across the skies in tumultuous cloud formations, 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 ephemeral presence on earth.
The Muse Gallery & Studio was established as an artist-led organisation set to combine studio practice with an in-house funding stream. Since 2003 The Muse has supported both gallery and studio elements; located in the heart of North Kensington. The Muse hosts an annual residency programme, with group and solo show opportunities designed for recent graduates, alongside a balance of emerging and established professionals.
