Edition of 50

Acute social observation combined with a strong sense of satire runs through the work of Boyd Webb. Whether sculpture, performance, photography or film, the small dramas of life are brought to the fore by Boyd Webb’s sense of the absurd. Everyday props re-enact familiar, real-life scenes whilst the artificiality of the materials he uses speaks of a fabricated nature held together by tenuous links.

About the Edition

Acute social observation combined with a strong sense of satire runs through the work of Boyd Webb. Whether sculpture, performance, photography or film, the small dramas of life are brought to the fore by Boyd Webb’s sense of the absurd. Everyday props re-enact familiar, real-life scenes whilst the artificiality of the materials he uses speaks of a fabricated nature held together by tenuous links.
Skirmish continues my fascination with representations of nature. Set prior to the intervention of the fly screen, I see Skirmish as an interactive souvenir from somewhere hot where flies desport themselves at the whim of the passing viewer.

New Zealander Boyd Webb attended London’s Royal College of Art in the early 70s and came to prominence alongside contemporaries such as Richard Wentworth, Richard Deacon and Alison Wilding. His work involves the creation of fantastical tableaux, which are then made into richly coloured photographs. Webb’s quirky humor and fondness for allegory has made his work highly popular, and, as such, it has been seen in exhibitions around the world.
