Ingrid Boot’s Little Ladies return to Parnell Gallery on October 9th as part of the Artweek Auckland programme. There will be a series of events happening in Parnell art galleries on Saturday 11th October, including Ingrid Boot putting the finishing touches to one of her paintings here at Parnell Gallery. Drop in between 10am – 4pm to meet Ingrid and see the talented artist at work.
The solo exhibition ‘Eau de Parfum’ will show 6 new pieces portraying beauty, femininity and fragrance. Ingrid’s well known elongated Little Ladies are draped sensuously over giant iconic perfume bottles surrounded by exquisitely painted flowers and blooms. Minute detail is captured beautifully from the petals on each and every flower, to the buttons and lace on an ornate corset.
The artist’s training in illustration and love of fashion promote a sense of storytelling as her Little Ladies bask in ecstasy in the aroma of fragrance and flowers. Executed in acrylics, with rich colours and a sense of romance, each piece from this highly skilled artist is a pleasure to view.
