Miranda Boulton (born 1973, Cambridge) is a Contemporary British Painter living and working in Cambridge, UK. She studied Art History at Sheffield Hallam University, graduating in 1994 and completed three years postgraduate study with Turps Banana Art School, London in 2015.
Boulton’s paintings are nature morte of flora. Her work is a response to historical references within this genre. Art historical images are translated through memory into a contemporary pictorial language, linked through expressive colour, gesture and form. Her work is an ongoing conversation between past and present, an exploration of new forms from old imagery and narratives.
She works mainly with oil paint, sometimes using acrylic spray paint at different points within her process. This provides a spontaneous contemporary element and enhances the tension between the diversity of marks on the surface.
Boulton has exhibited widely throughout the UK. Recent significant exhibitions include the two-person show ‘Double Time’ at Arthouse1, London in 2019, Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2019 and 2016 and The Creekside Open in 2019. She has work in many private collections in the UK and abroad.
