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.


Christopher Reiger, Living, Moving, In The Space Between, 2009. Gouache, watercolor and marker on Arches paper, 15 x 14 7/8 inches


Christopher Reiger, Cost Benefit Analysis, 2008. Pen and sumi ink, gouache, watercolor and marker on Arches paper, 12 x 12 inches


Christopher Reiger, Everywhere Looks The Same #1, 2008. Watercolor, gouache, pen and sumi ink on Arches paper, 12 3/4 x 10 inches
