Maja Boot

Seascapes en vissen

She paints the sea and her food. Sardines, shrimps, mussels, oysters. During her working holidays on the Wadden Islands and when the mudflats dry up, she collects oysters and eats the mussels from the bows of the boats. To eat and to model her canvases as a still life. Maja is a master of using a palette knife and brush to keep things to their simplest form. Text: Josette Berg

Breton houses

I like spaces that feel earthy but belong to heaven.
Canopies, beach houses, domes and verandas. Attempts to bound spaces that cannot be bounded.
Attempts to make the elusive tangible. The heavenly houses overlook that which is vulnerable… a place for the soul.
