Painter based out of Los Angeles.

A native of Los Angeles who was adopted at birth, Theodore Boyer's painting and sculptural practice navigates a wide range of subjects materials: a formal examination of identity and belonging. A multimedia merger of motifs offers a vehicle for personal revelations via investigations in cartography, astrology, astronomy, anthropology and mysticism. Boyer's research in science—and pseudoscience—provides a narrative framework for further investigations into color: the grounding focus of Boyer’s oeuvre. Dense pigments permeate the backgrounds of Boyer’s paintings in saturated rainbow hues. Alchemical spills, stains and splashes dye the canvas, exposing numerous under-paintings visible through various transparencies. Throughout his paintings and sculpture Boyer nods to abstract expressionism, minimalism and psychedelic graphic art of the 20th century and blends those with imagery and subjects from his own history. Born in 1983—orphaned between the Millennials and Gen X—Boyer’s work reflects that liminal space between the digital and physical planes. In his ongoing series “Rainbow Cataclysm” he grapples with the notion of humanity’s connection to, and disconnection from, nature: a return to earth, after the fall, or maybe just before it.
