Qype: Linda Boucher in Brighton

Brighton

I absolutely ADORE this little gallery along Brighton seafront – it brings out my inner girly girl like no other place in the city. Linda Boucher’s paintings are stunningly simple and all very, very pink. Specialising in ‘still life’ paintings depicting beautiful shoes, handbags and elegant items upon dressing tables, there is a wonderful feel to her work that suggests a vibrancy and life in these colourful, inanimate objects.

Boucher does what every great artist should be able to do – she takes the everyday and makes it new and wonderful. Her portraits are stunning too – faces of women made up in classic 1920s-style.

If you fancy getting your hands on one of these original artworks, it’ll set you back between £45 and (ouch) £325. My favourites are her shoe paintings which are all around the £120 mark. If I had my own place (and was decidedly richer) I’d love to cover my bedroom/dressing room in her designs. I’m just not sure it would go down TOO well with my boyfriend…
