Arthouse Gallery, 66 McLachlan Avenue, Rushcutters Bay NSW 2011
Arthouse Gallery is thrilled to present the newest addition to our dynamic stable of artists, Tasmanian artist Michaye Boulter, with her debut exhibition ‘Crossing’. Boulter’s practice is inextricably influenced by the Australian coastline and the sublimity of the infinite ocean. Having spent much of her early years afloat with her fisherman father, and after settling on Bruny Island with her husband, a seafarer, Boulter draws from a fertile wellspring of inspiration, experience and knowledge. Her creative output charts the paradoxical vastness and intimacy of the sea, channelling unfiltered memories that collectively reveal a psychological symbiosis with the natural world. The artist’s virtuosic seascapes are gradually built up over time with thin glazes, creating a sense of depth and luminosity reflective of the layers of mystery that shroud the depths of the ocean.
