de boer (Antwerp) is pleased to present Glad Surprise, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Claire Milbrath, her second with the gallery and her first solo exhibition in Europe.
‘It is ever a new thing, a glad surprise, the stirring of life at the end of winter. One day there seems to be no sign of life and then almost overnight, swelling buds, delicate blooms, blades of grass, bugs, insects—an entire world of newness everywhere. It is the glad surprise at the end of winter.’
-Mystic Howard Thurman
Glad Surprise brings together Milbrath’s collection of seasonal landscapes and interior scenes which serve as quiet reflections of the artist’s psyche. The recurring figure in these scenes serves as an alter-ego to the artist, providing a pathway to the multitudes of oneself.
