NEW/NOW Gail Boyajian
June 24 - Sept. 23, 2007

NEW/NOW artist Gail Boyajian says painting is a way for her to understand and investigate the beauty of nature around her. Boyajian derives narratives and imagery from Renaissance and Enlightenment era paintings, times in which classical mythology was revived. She says painting allows her the freedom to invent and revise landscapes, sometimes based on existing places. Boyajian’s work are on view in the NEW/NOW exhibition through Sept. 23, 2007.

Boyajian’s work has been shown at museums and galleries across New England and the United States including the Fuller Museum of Art in Brockton, Mass., Judy Goldman Fine Art Gallery in Boston, Mass., and the Katharina Rich Perlow Gallery in New York City. She studied at the Slade School of Art, London, and received a B.A. in Fine Arts from Tufts University and a Master of Architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is currently an instructor in art and architecture at Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass. She lives in Cambridge, Mass.
