This exhibition features twosomes, twins, couples, and pairs of works that demonstrate the artist’s material and thematic sensibilities. Boyer’s rhetoric of domesticity and intimacy is expressed through combinations of artist-designed shoes, silver, rugs, and sconces installed in order to sew the artists painted works into the framework of his convivial lifestyle theatre.
