Artist-couple Boyd & Evans have been working together since 1968. Their paintings, while highly representational, have a perspective, scale and composition that often edge closer to the surreal.
The air feels thin, time frozen and gravity suspended in their dreamlike pictures. Photography has also become more central to their work in recent years, with shocks of colour penetrating landscapes of the American Southwest.
With selections from over 40 years of their work together, Ikon presents Boyd & Evans’ first major survey exhibition.
