bio2Brian’s work is a thoughtful combination of intuition and a delicate familiarity of figurative and representational painting, resulting in multi-layered images that reference many elements of the human condition. He focuses on the issues of memory and communication, often incorporating text into his narratives, thus redefining or challenging the way we perceive the written word and contemporary communication as a whole.

 

Born in South Dakota, Brian Boner has exhibited his work throughout the United States including Phoenix, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Tucson. He has participated in events, benefits and artists’ symposiums through the Phoenix Art Museum and Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Brian is represented by Wilde Meyer Gallery in Scottsdale and Tucson.  He currently lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona.
