Consequently, harbouring a world, unknown, unseen and allowing for mystery and magic.

An exhibition of mix-media works on canvasby Lise Boussière opens this summer at Boogie-Wall.

Lise Boussière presents her Floating Forest’ by showcasing works all connected through her incredible use of painting layer spontaneously smeared onto different type of loose woven fabric without frame.

The works on view are an invitation to dive into an installation of levitating paintings. To walk through to look beyond oneself, onto the peripheries and off centre, to immerge into a deep forest on floating artworks.

Nature is a constant source of inspiration for Lise Boussière offering a manicured and landscaped environment but left to its own devices growing into a wilderness of untamed and colourful wildlife. Consequently, harbouring a world, unknown, unseen and allowing for mystery and magic.

Lise Boussière navigates  through spontaneous and rhythmic mark-making creates still life scenes and abstract ‘inner landscapes’.


She visualises the ephemeral personality of nature, seasons changes such as snow, fallen leaves and spring flowers; applying these scenes to found and raw construction materials, she contrasts her delicate touch and application.

The artist’s expressive lines are always dynamically depicted, in oil and acrylic colours to evoke, delineate, any aesthetic sense, emotions and feelings within the viewer. By letting her brush, navigating with active and strong getting lose in the painting and hand go; the artist chooses technically to thicken the paint layers by layers and while playing with the fabric she increases the unexpecting relief on the work giving it a texture and it is almost like a glaze, leaving various unexpected forms visible beneath the layers of paint.
