From the Shoulders of Giants presents a series of self-portraits created from a combination of images, paintings and projections that consider how an artist’s development and practice is influenced by works of other artists’. The work questions whether true originality really exists. In the series, portraits of artists from the renaissance and earlier, to abstract impressionists, minimalists and post modernists are layered, appearing as more than a single image. This is the artist’s ongoing series that looks at the ideas of collaboration and the myth of the iconoclastic individual artist. Boyce references artists he considers giants, bringing their work and influence into his works, in homage.

The opening reception will also see the launch of the accompanying art book.
