Daniel C. Boyer

Daniel C. Boyer has been active in surrealism since 1992, although his earliest automatic
drawings and paintings date to his discovery of the Manifestoes of Surrealism by André Breton in the summer of 1987. In addition to painting in gouache and using fumage, Boyer has produced drawings using the automatic method developed by surrealists in Bucharest, in which a dot is made at the site of impurities in a blank piece of paper, and lines are then drawn between the dots). He has also done some collages including prehensilhouettes (a method invented by Penelope Rosemont) and cubomanias, and work involving computer graphics and using mushrooms. He has had solo exhibits in Marquette, Michigan and New York, and Montreal, in addition to his participation in numerous group shows.
