Signs of Life 2
Interview with Esther Boehm
YOU WERE BORN IN LONDON, WHERE YOUR PARENTS MET, BUT YOUR ROOTS LIE IN GERMANY AND RUSSIA. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT?
My father’s family emigrated from northwest Germany, then ruled by Denmark, to Estonia in the mid-nineteenth century. Many German families emigrated to the Baltic states, then ruled by Russia. My father was born in Moscow. My mother’s family were in Latvia. She was born in St Petersburg. Both families left Russia, by whatever means possible, after the Bolshevik revolution

An exhibition of oil painting by Sue Payne and Margaret Waller, where oil paint is used in two very different ways, with one artist painting Alla Prima (in one session) and one artist taking several weeks of layering and scraping back the paint. These painting methods are worlds apart, but meet and collide to create a fascinating collection of paintings.
