Jamie Boyd's Family Dynasty
This month we present an insight into the life and world of Jamie Boyd a 5th generation Boyd from a family of artists considered as art royalty in Australia with a heritage of artists dating back to the early 1800 hundreds.
Jamie Boyd, Arthur Boyd & Nathaniel Boyd. Exhibiting June 2012 at Red Hill Gallery Brisbane
Art from five generations of the famous and artistically-gifted Boyd family, including previously unseen artworks by acclaimed Australian artist Arthur Boyd AO, will be showcased at Brisbane’s Red Hill Gallery from Friday 1 June 2012. The works will be
part of Jamie Boyd’s exhibition, whose art will be alongside that of his late father Arthur Boyd AO (1920-1999), as well as his:| son, Nathaniel Boyd, who enjoys an international reputation as a classical cellist performing at prestigious world venues and
works in a range of mediums across sculpture, gouache, pastel and oil on canvas and board grandfather, William Merric Boyd* (1888–1959), who was credited as the father of studio pottery in Australia and is also known for his drawing, painting and sculpting
and great-grandmother, Emma Minnie Boyd* (1858–1936), who is often remembered as the matriarch of the artistically gifted Boyd family and an artist in her own right who commenced exhibiting in the early 1870s. Based in London, Jamie is an established artist
in his own right and has amassed an international following for his distinctive style with exhibitions throughout Australia, Italy, Germany, Holland and England. Red Hill Gallery Director, Margaret Campbell-Ryder, is honoured to represent Jamie and offer art
lovers and collectors the opportunity to view and own paintings by Australian art royalty. “Jamie is a magnificent craftsman and colourist and his art is mesmerising through intense, lyrical paintings,” Campbell-Ryder said. “The fact his most recent London
exhibition was opened by the Australian High Commissioner and his most recent Australian exhibition at the Boyd family estate was opened by The Hon. Bob Hawke AC, is testament to the high esteem held for Jamie and his art.” Campbell-Ryder is equally excited
to exhibit works by Nathaniel Boyd, Arthur Boyd AO, Emma Minnie Boyd*, and William Merric Boyd*. “It is an absolute coup to have an exhibition featuring art from four more generations of the Boyd family and as for the never-before-seen Arthur Boyd artworks,
we are grateful Jamie has entrusted these pieces from his personal collection to Red Hill Gallery,” Campbell-Ryder said. Sales commence prior to opening, and the exhibition will conclude on Thursday 17 June, 2012. * Please note the artworks by Emma Minnie
