An Exciting Action

About the artwork
In this piece, Daisy Boman expounds on the importance of thinking out of the box, and the progress that follows the creation of unique ideas and distinctive thoughts. Her ‘Bo-men’ climb the surface of the canvas in a bid to escape their restrictions and defined habitat. Working together, they work their way to the edge in a dynamic, swelling motion. There are also those who are left behind in the process, the outliers, who add tension to the artwork as one wonders if they too will make it out of their confined space.
About the artist
Having grown up in the Flemish part of Belgium near Antwerp, Daisy Boman’s childhood interest in art eventually led her to enter the Academy of Fine Art, where she studied interior design and photography. She then proceeded to experiment with ceramics, leading to innovative artistic possibilities. Boman created her 'bo-men', as unique figures that climb, interact with each other, fall, crawl and run. Alone, but mostly in numbers, they tell stories about life, human destiny and universal feelings. Having exhibited in Belgium, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, Boman’s works are part of private and public collections within the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and in the United States.
