Boo Mitford is a painter whose practice focuses on exploring the potential and behaviour of colour through movement. Educated at Saint Martins School of Art, Mitford worked as a graphic designer for some of London’s most prestigious agencies, however painting remained central to her work and she returned to it full time in 2004.
The resulting paintings not only offer a chronicle of Mitford’s meticulous study into behaviour and personality of colour, but a window into the mind of the artist and the dynamic between chaos and control.
”Through fine adjustments of volume, situation and strength, I can create a vivid painting of oscillating colour”.
Mitford lives between London and Hampshire, where she has a large studio in an old converted school house.
