Trident Gallery is very pleased to present An Eye for Form, an exhibition of color photographs by Winston Boyer. The gallery will host an public reception for the artist on Saturday, August 18, 5–7pm, and will host a conversation with the artist on Sunday, August 19, at 3pm. Museum educator Annie Storr will offer an informal guided session of looking at the exhibition on Sunday, September 9, at 3pm.

Winston Boyer’s photographs engage a viewer’s imagination like paintings while remaining documents of the world of ordinary perception inhabited by artist and viewer alike. Each photograph is both a painterly construction and a discovery of art in life. Each one both sings in the choir of visual art and sounds the tonic note of a duet, which the viewer develops and transforms with imagination, recollections, knowledge, and contemplation.

An Eye for Form surveys the diversity of Boyer’s subject matter while suggesting unity and intention in his painterly approach to photography, especially his use of color, line, and shape. The exhibition presents twenty-two of Boyer’s most compelling images in pairs chosen so that each one suggests an illuminating — and perhaps unexpected — way to see form in its partner.

Within this selection you will encounter both humor and solemnity, calculus and chance, natural beauty and elegant artifice, as you follow the eye of a master of form.
