My stepdaughter wants me to take her to the DMV for her drivers test today.
I’m having a solo exhibition at The New Steine Hotel
(10-11 New Steine, Brighton. BN2 1PB)
2nd December-19th February
Private View: 1st December at 7pm
Brighton based artist Linda Boucher, uses traditional oil painting techniques to create her contemporary paintings of glamorous women, and their gorgeous belongings.
Best known for her Red Shoe Paintings, you’ll find all kinds of objects of desire, from Disco Balls to Lipsticks- Powder Puffs to Russian Dolls within her still life paintings.
Drawing on her love of vintage movies, and stunning colours Linda also paints wonderful portraits of women. These paintings have a really contemporary feel, blended with fashions from the 1940s & 50s.
Self taught, Linda has been working from her Seafront studio, in Brighton’s Artist Quarter, since 1991. Over the years, Linda has exhibited in several exhibitions, including shows in Brighton, London and Monte Carlo.
Linda has also successfully worked with publishing companies such as American Greetings, The Art Group, and most recently Paperlink.
Linda is thrilled to be exhibiting over the festive season within The New Steine Hotel. New work will be presented at the opening of the show, and more work will be added as the show continues. The show offers the opportunity to see Linda’s work in a new setting, within Brighton’s vibrant Kemptown shopping area.
All work presented is for sale, and will include original oil paintings, alongside prints (framed and unframed), notebooks and 2012 Calendars.
On the evening of the Private View, Linda will be making a donation of 15% from all sales to local charity Lunch Positive, who offer a healthy and enjoyable meal for people living with, and affected by, HIV.
