In the window for April: Eric Boyer


In the window for the month of April are the wire mesh sculptures of Eric Boyer. Known primarily for his figurative work in wire mesh...in recent years Eric has been turning his focus to the geometric, the organic, and the vessel.

"I have been involved in creating, artistically and otherwise, since my childhood. My work in wire mesh is a result of over twenty years of fascination with a material I discovered quite by accident, searching for a medium that I could best express myself with. Working by hand with leftover scraps of material at a blacksmith shop I was employed in, I gradually came to know the incredible expressive power of a medium most people, artists included, had never even heard of. Thus began a refinement and synthesis of all my art and design experiences; years of life drawing, carving in wood and clay-as well as the newly discovered mystique of metal work itself- as I learned the skills necessary to work with a material that is at once supple as clay, demanding and hard as steel, yet finite and woven, literally a fabric of wire."

As always, your purchases support the artists and SAC education and outreach programs.
