About the artwork
Depicting a welcoming crowd for ones who are returning from an unknown destination, the placement of the figures elicits contemplation, pushing the viewer to examine the reasons for their actions and the welcome. Are they heroic figures? Or perhaps convention breakers who are being forced back to conformity? The beauty of Boman's work is her constant dichotomy of thought and endeavours to provide new perspectives to every scene.
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.
