Eric Boyer, "Olympians", steel wire mesh, 33 x 38 x 8 inches, $3800.
Boyer’s beautifully realized torsos and abstracted forms blur the lines between substance and nothingness, shadow and light, the real and the perceived. His figures are mesmerizing, both idealized in their perfection and realistic in their fidelity to the human form.
Eric Boyer, "Twisting Female", steel wire mesh, 20 x 13 x 6, $1800.
The industrial steel wire mesh, in Boyer's hands, becomes a fabric that drapes and undulates. The result is organic, shape-shifting sculptures that treat transparency and airiness as elements that are as tangible as opacity and solidity.
Eric Boyer, "Couple", steel wire mesh, 23 x 14 x 6 inches, $2800.
In Boyer’s capable hands, opposites merge and distinctions dissolve, leaving us with an expression of beauty that defies categorizing.
Eric Boyer, "Red Thought Bubble", steel wire mesh, 19 x 9 x 6 inches, $1500.
Whether figurative or abstract, Boyer's creations transcend his materials and become receptacles of almost idealized perfection that belie his freewheeling, open-minded approach to his work and the hard-edged nature of the metal.
