About the painting
Dusty Boynton’s paintings demonstrate her ongoing interest in conflating the informal and the sophisticated. As The New York Times noted in a review, the work has, “A Childlike Style that Isn’t Childish.” Her cast of characters, with their enlarged eyes, heads, and other quirky features, abandon conventional draftsmanship or traditional depiction and end up in a world of their own. The loose and expressive brushstrokes, heightened color palette, and fantastic, sometimes supernatural imagery give her figures a carefree and imaginative, innocence that is often associated with children’s art.
