SEEING THROUGH THE MEGAPHONE OF CHILDREN LAUGHING : DUSTY BOYNTON & CHRISTOPHER REIGER AT DENISE BIBRO FINE ART

SUMMER SHOW at Denise Bibro Fine Art presents an array of interesting voices, but two of the strongest stood out to me as coming from Dusty Boynton and Christopher Reiger. Both have harnessed something whimsical and powerful from their earliest experiences of the world, and we are the lucky who get to glimpse into that private space.

Dusty Boynton nods to the moment of realizing the hand you are holding belongs to a stranger with hybrid characters that frolic and linger, flail and posture, tempering the fancy of childhood with the acumen assumed with time.


Dusty Boynton, Small Crowd, 2011/2012. Structured relief, 32 x 33 inches


Dusty Boynton, Rosemary’s Watch, 2011/2012. Structured relief, 50 x 19 inches


Dusty Boynton, Accumulated Loneliness, 2011. Oil and graphite on linen, 66 x 72 inches


Christopher Reiger reactivates that ingenious childhood ability to imagine reality as it unfolds before us with symbol-rich imagery, that is at once grounded in science and history while tethered to mythology and mysticism.

MATT WOODWARD : METICULOUS CHAOS

I recently had the opportunity to experience Matt Woodward’s massive, beautiful, harsh, and fragile drawings at the Chicago Cultural Center. The exhibition felt somber and powerful, like entering a gothic chapel or a convention for the deaf as the dust is settling from an unspeakable catastrophe. I had the sense of something larger in action, with the whisper of full accessibility only for the true believer or those of affirmed legitimacy. Yet, as one nears these works made with graphite, wood glue, putty, rain water, scorching sun, rasping wind, dust and detritus, the tangible experience commences. They are screamingly calm, violently still, requisitioning anyone who can access these emotional complexities to enter and engage.
