    About The Work

    Exploring the intersections of architecture, design and nature, the work of Scottish artist Martin Boyce is based on a visual language of shapes, lines and pictorial representations. Often resembling runes, the short, text-like lines of his printed works are also found throughout his sculptural installations. The interactions of angles and dangling shapes bring a contemporary terminology to his unique style. In Brushing Against Strange Weeds (Shapes and Noises) the artist references shapes in a photograph by Joël and Jan Martel of four concrete trees, originally created for the 1925 “Exposition des Arts Décoratifs” in Paris. Boyce has remarked that the trees "represent a perfect collapse of architecture and nature.”
