Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to announce "What We Long to Know," Lowell Boyers' first solo exhibition with the gallery. The show will be comprised of new paintings and will run from October 13 through November 12, 2011.

In an almost alchemical process, Boyers blends acrylic paint, ink, watercolor and resin to create lyric images that hover between abstraction and figuration. Including swathes and swirls of brilliant color interlaced with depictions of figures who appear to defy gravity, the works function as portals between the material world and a fluid, dreamlike realm of symphonic hues, bold brushwork and mysterious narrative. Combining skilled draftsmanship with a poetic sense of color and composition, Boyers paints in an intuitive, stream-of-consciousness fashion. His unconventional use of ink and watercolor on exposed canvas results in unexpected painterly detail and a surprising materiality at close range.

Lowell Boyers' work has been exhibited nationally and internationally since 1994 and is included in many prominent collections.
