The Muse Gallery presents Encounters, the combined voices of four women painters; four voices portraying their visual concerns with nature, identity and the environment.

A shared fascination with the aqueous forms of our planet is manifest in these new works by Claudia Boese, Jane Frederick, Gosia Łapsa-Malawska and Mary Romer.

Water gushes from elaborate Baroque fountains, surges across the skies in tumultuous cloud formations, or lies in still pools reflecting trees, branches and vegetation. Shadowy figures appear in mysterious landscapes, conjuring up emotions that fill and colour the distance between artist and viewer, portraying a sense of our ephemeral presence on earth.

The fluidity of painted surfaces has been drawn from diverse cultural influences. Informed by the simplicity and subtlety at the core of Japanese aesthetics in the case of Gosia Łapsa-Malawska.

Jane Frederick draws on multiple disciplines, dissolving digitised images into the liquid materiality of paint. 

Mary Romer has used the Covid isolation to experiment. The fusion of pigment and waterpooling on the surface has created veils and skeins of tinted colour, expressing sensations of light, vapour and mist, in the cloud-skies above.

Claudia Boese’s visceral works are shaped through the manipulation of painting materials themselves.


Encounters collectively celebrates the exhilarating process of painting whilst reframing our relationship with time and the forces of nature. 

The exhibition also includes a selection of smaller ‘conversational’ pieces which the artists have made in response to each other’s work.
