Solo Art Exhibition by artist Ingrid Boot
Solo Art Exhibition by artist Ingrid Boot. 'Eau de Parfum' Parnell Gallery, Auckland. 9 - 13th October 2014

October 9 – 13th at Parnell Gallery during Auckland Art Week.

Artist in residence 10-4pm, Saturday 11th October.

Ingrid Boot originates from the UK and emigrated to New Zealand in 2000. She studied art at London’s Westminster University followed by a degree in Illustration from De Montfort University. Her paintings predominantly portray the beauty of the female form with a stylised realism developing intrigue and character. There is an essence of timeless elegance which is encapsulated within all Ingrid’s paintings. Her inspiration comes from a love of fashion history and movie icons of a bygone era. Often she will dream up the outfits worn by her Little Ladies placing great importance on every detail from the stitching on a dress to each and every jewel on a necklace.

As a final touch, there is a unique element in all her paintings. If you examine one of Ingrid’s paintings closely enough you will find the signature illustration she includes. A tiny lizard is camouflaged somewhere….you will have to look hard to find it!
