More Information

"Since 1970, Boice has been painting in serialized format. The latest work, dating from 1972, employs three conjoined unprimed canvases, 27"x31.5" each abutted to form a whole. In the largest group to date, the horizontal canvas to the left is framed in a wood strip flush to the surface, the remaining two are unframed. Like the first, the center canvas is horizontally positioned and the third canvas to the right is abutted. The three canvases including the framed element form an asymetrical field. This irregular format is consistently used while the imagery varies from painting to painting." Robert Pincus--Witten, "On Bruce Boice", ArtForum, Nov. 1974, pp60-61
