ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This first major survey of artist duo Boyd & Evans in over a decade marks fifty-five years of their collaboration.
The exhibition will focus on paintings, spanning their careers from the 1960s to today. It will display many of their experiments: from collage and stencil to spray-gun and brushes; surreal dramas that unfold in domestic, urban and suburban settings; and visual games between the real and artificial. It will include satirical political work, much loved scenes of Milton Keynes and epic depictions of the natural world in the USA, Malaysia and Brunei.
In 1980 Boyd (Fionnuala Boyd) & Evans (Les Evans) were commissioned to make work by the Milton Keynes Development Corporation. They were then invited back as artists in residence and have remained ever since. One of their best-known pieces, Fiction, Non-fiction and Reference (1984) situated in the Central Library, is treasured by Milton Keynes residents.
