Annie Boyer delves into the changing nature of art in this exhibition. Boyer’s work explores how water, air, and time can change and impact her non-representational acrylic canvases. She creates a dialogue with her work by responding to how it appears.

I apply a layer of paint, and then once it has dried, I respond with another, and so on. Each painting is built of layer after layer of paint, each one affecting and being affected by the others….The painting will look one way when it is wet, and look completely different after it is dry. Even though I start out with an idea of what I want the paint to do, it rarely dries the way I expected it to. Allowing the paint to be what it is, without judgment, and without trying to force it into something it isn’t, is liberating.
