Boo’s paintings deal with a broad range of subject matters, from mundane domestic objects to images of car and airplane crash-scenes, derelict interiors of cathedrals and unpeopled chambers of shopping malls. Boo treats banal objects, modern architectural interiors and destructive scenes as metaphors for the human condition, transforming these into a symbol of contemporary life through his loose, gestural technique and use of a restrained palette to emphasize the materiality of paint. In his portraiture series, Boo integrate his personal experiences with everyday’s social and political events to generate uncanny and idiosyncratic expressionistic portraitures serving as comic observations in our everyday life. His recent series of near-monochromatic visions conjures a natural world gradually dissected and displaced by urban development, putting it in danger of destruction by the desire of the modern men in the quest of a better life.
