321 Gallery presents New Bruce, Dan Boardman’s first solo exhibition in New York City.
Boardman’s recent work is a complex assortment of collage-like images arranged in grids, which combine methodically cut-out texts with photographs of assorted objects such as tools, fauna, and detritus. Combining these with hundreds of multiple-exposures and hand drawn objects, Boardman creates varying fields of depth that amount to dizzying, monumental pictures. Teeming with visual detail, the large-format prints reflect the role chance plays when natural observations, text referenced from self-help books, and differences in scale encounter each other.
