Biography from LewAllen Galleries:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Boyd & Evans is a British husband and wife team of painters who collaborate to produce narrative paintings marked by detail and compositional inventiveness. With a goal of mapping human interventions into the majesty of the American West, they create work to provoke collisions between the standardized and the sublime. Reinforcing the tension between the constructed and organic, they strive for work, which draws additional meaning from seamless merging of photographic clarity and traces of the hand-made.

Working together since 1968, the duo are conspirators of new perspective. They use frequent travel recorded in photography as a type of archeological source material from which to extract viewpoints of the world, both idiosyncratic and majestic. The idea is to merge the unique eye of the camera with the genius of accomplished painting.

Fionnuala Boyd and Les Evans earned their arts educations at Leeds University and Leeds College of Art, respectively. Their paintings have been exhibited in the 2010 Threadneedle Visitors Choice Prize—an award in the United Kingdom for representational art.

Their work is included in the permanent collections o the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Tate Britain in London.

The artists live and work together near London.
