Taking its title from critic Waldemar Januszczak’s rundown of the 2016 Abstract Expressionism exhibition at the Royal Academy – ‘there is not enough emotion in our art any more. We think too much and feel too little’ –

Boyle suggests her artwork is about ‘the journey of learning about the spirit of the world and ourselves and accepting all the imperfections. I want people to feel there is joy and playfulness within my work and titles, which comes from enjoying the process’. This show most certainly highlights this and the feeling of delight within the paintings is infectious. I can’t help feeling the space somewhat limited Boyle – her paintings sometimes feel as though they were destined for a much grander scale, however this was clearly exchanged for a pleasing sense of intimacy within the rooms.
