Theodore Boyer

 b. 1983 Seal Beach, CA

 BIO
Los Angeles-based Theodore Boyer’s works seen at a distance are reminiscent of satellite imagery and foreign landscapes. Up close, however, the tactile quality of the paintings emerges.  Boyer derives much of his visual inspiration from his personal surroundings, scientific journals and images generated by NASA.  Referencing compositions and techniques by Land Artists and Abstract Expressionists before him, Boyer’s process points to the influence of technology without negating the artifice of his canvases as man-made objects.
