‘I see everything around me as a possible painting, from an old tractor abandoned in a field, to a single glance or pose from an unsuspecting stranger. As soon as I have a seed of an idea in my head, the need to capture that moment onto canvas can be quite overwhelming.’
Ingrid Boot 2007
English artist Ingrid Boot has lived in New Zealand since 2000. She completed an Art Foundation in 1991 at Westminster University, London followed by a degree in Illustration at De Montfort University.
Ingrid paints in a realistic and illustrative style. She sees beauty in many subjects from the desolate to the glamorous. Many of her works portray the female form, exploring the complex characteristics of femininity such as modesty, self confidence, romance and intrigue. She never degrades women, rather enhances them, capturing a timeless elegance that will last a lifetime. There is often a starkness to Ingrid’s work. The subject is sometimes isolated from all surroundings, and at other times, only partially lit within a darkened room, removing distraction and creating focus.
Ingrid’s work can be found in galleries in New Zealand, Italy and the UK. She exhibits her paintings in various shows throughout New Zealand. To find out more about viewing Ingrid’s work, please fill in your details on the contact page for regular updates and exhibition invitations.
