Dusty BoyntonApril 5 - May 19, 2012
Denise Bibro Fine Art presents Dusty Boynton: On Edge, the artist’s sixth solo exhibition at the gallery, on view April 5 through May 19, 2012.
Boynton’s creative oeuvre continues to have no boundaries. She has created a new modus operandi. This exhibition is primarily comprised of structured reliefs and mixed media paintings. Boynton’s work continues to have the inner child, the devilish pranksters and/or the sinister interpreter, as in her earlier works. Continuing her love of drawing with paint, she is now literally cutting out components of her paintings, placing those extracted parts on two and three dimensional surfaces.
Still the tireless maverick mark maker, Boynton approaches her work with a sense of intimacy, transparency and vulnerability; conveying the raw demeanor and unpredictability of her subjects that we all relate to. As Critic Donald Kuspit notes in his essay, “Boynton’s works are as timeless and fresh as ever: the inner child remains alive and well in her art.”
We are pleased to announce, in conjunction with this opening, the printing of “Out of Line,” a survey of the extensive work leading up to this new body of work by Dusty Boynton. These books will be available for sale at the opening reception and during the exhibition. In celebration of this event, a limited amount of this same publication will be available with a unique work by the artist enclosed.
Boynton has shown at Littlejohn Contemporary, New York, NY; Gallery Jupiter, Little Silver, NJ; and Steffany Martz Gallery, New York, NY. Selected group exhibition exhibitions include In the Garden at Barbara Krakow in Boston, MA; New Prints, 2002 at the International Print Center, New York, NY; Book, Box, Word, Volume II at the University of Florida and North Miami Contemporary Art Center. Her work has been reviewed in ArtNews, Art in America, The New York Times, Arts Magazine, and New Art Examiner. Boynton’s work was also featured in the film “Remember Me” with Robert Pattinson.
