Balloons and spheres of colour escape the weightiness of terra firma and sail upwards, buoyed by spirit. Maggie Mailer's series of paintings are not airy-fairy renditions of candy colour, but thoughtful depictions of contrasts in mood and tone. The balloons are always released into the ether in a spirit of hope, however small, and it is how they are set against the ever-changing skies that keep them magical.
