Alexander Boynes: Changing Places
Alexander Boynes Changing Places
About the artist:
Alexander Boynes is a Canberra based artist who has ‘always been interested in capturing movement and dynamism in the body’. This dynamism is achieved through the use of sharp linear patterns within figures and a palette of strong bright colours which allows the image to appear to leap out of its aluminium frame. Another characteristic of Boynes’ work is the flouro-paint that he applies to the back of the work which when hung appear to glow on the wall, similar to that of a neon sign. Alexander is a creative thinker who views the world through a strong and defined social conscience reflecting deeply on our country’s shared past. These views, combined with the many disciplines he works with, inform and reflects Alexander’s contemporary and unique art practice. 1
The Work of art:
Alexander’s work is bright, bold and dynamic. It invokes movement and could be interpreted as dance or sport. His use of aluminium reflects the contemporary attitudes to experimenting with new media in new exiting ways.
