Chaos Contained is an exhibition of paintings by Boo Mitford. The exhibition showcases the artist’s investigation into the tumultuous nature of paint and the personality of colour over the period 2005 - 2015.


Guided by a series of strict self-imposed rules, Mitford’s paintings are reinforced by consistency and method in an attempt to control chaos. The artist explains: ‘Paint has every inclination to be unpredictable - it’s a bit of a wild child. Through fine adjustments of volume, situation and strength, I can create a vivid painting of oscillating colour. It is the nature of paint to want to escape. Sometimes colours combine harmoniously, sometimes they fight like hell. The capricious nature of paint is what fascinates me, and what I strive to explore through my work.’


The resulting paintings offer not only a chronicle of Mitford’s meticulous study into the behaviour and personality of colour, but a window into the mind of the artist and the dynamic between chaos and control.
