Boulton employs a responsive working process: one mark leads onto the next as the painting evolves.  She uses a vigorous method of adding and removing paint and turning the canvas to destabilise her process.  Compositional tensions evolve through gestural marks juxtaposed next to carefully painted outlines. She deliberately leaves traces of each layer visible revealing the paintings journey.

Her work infuses the Nature Morte tradition with visual surprises by building her layers over and over again.  She sources images of distant arrangements through the Internet late at night and commits them to memory in the no man’s land between being awake and asleep. The following day she paints from the memory, developing colour and form by responding to her current feelings. Her desire to recover the found image is eventually abandoned as the work writes it’s own narrative in the layers of paint and marks.

Sometimes she paints from the same memory over and over again noting how the present filters and manipulates the memory. Painting allows her to access and explore her perception and remembered experiences.  She combines feelings and both conscious and unconscious responses via the process of painting.
