Paintings from internationally acclaimed artist, the most prominent living member of the famous Boyd family dynasty, Jamie Boyd, will be featured in his new exhibition ‘From the Other Shore’ at Brisbane’s Red Hill Gallery from Friday 6 October 2017.
An established and experienced artist, Boyd’s practice is currently based in London, which he travels from on a regular basis to attend to exhibitions of his distinctive work held in Australia, England, Italy, Germany and Holland.
Talented from an early age, Boyd studied at the Michael Karolyi Foundation in Southern France and began working as a professional artist at the age of seventeen. His paintings are award-winning, spanning six decades and numerous exhibitions.
Jamie Boyd, son of the late Arthur Boyd AO and grandson of the late Merric Boyd, the fourth generation of the Boyd Family; is a master of colour and craft, using materials of any shape, colour or description to create some visually mesmerising pieces. His lyrical works are often created spontaneously, or as inspiration hits him:
“One of the joys of painting in the open air, or as some may say ‘on the spot’ is the pleasure taking that captured scene back to the studio, not to copy but to use as a prompt to rekindle the original inspiration. A beautiful reminder of the emotional state as much as the time and place.” – Jamie Boyd
“Red Hill Gallery is honoured to represent a gifted artist such as Jamie Boyd, and to offer the rare opportunity for art lovers to view and own paintings by Australian artistic royalty.” – Margaret Campbell-Ryder (Director)
