Biography from Greenleaf Gallery:
Peter Boyer was born in New York in 1948, moving to the West Coast with his family in 1960. He studied art in California and Oregon, receiving his B.A. from San Francisco State University in 1977. He also studied architecture at The Southern California Institute of Architecture.

Boyer operated a small design/build business in the 1970s which acquainted him with the materials and techniques of building construction. Many of these materials and techniques have found their way into the making of his mixed media works.

Boyer's art deals with physical and material elements in making his constructed works. He builds paintings by successive applications and deletions of various materials: canvas, muslin, linen, paint, gesso, charcoal, and graphite. His is a process of working and reworking the surfaces by tearing off and reapplying his materials until the work attains what he has described as "presence".

Peter Boyer maintains a studio at the Hunter's Point Shipyard Complex in San Francisco. His work is included in numerous private, corporate, and public collections. He has exhibited extensively around the United States and in Japan.
