Rine Boyer
(American, b. 1982)

Chicago artist Rine Boyer is known for characterizing figures with simple outline and applies repetitive patterns to detail the personality of individuals. With iconic shapes and spirited colors, this has become her unique and notable style of her art.

Boyer’s most recent show, “Between”, explores the intimate relationship among different characters, including roles between generations, interaction among man and furkids, etc. She furthers her works to narrate the affecting moments in daily life that uncover audiences’ deep memories. Boyer’s solo exhibition, Between, showcases more than 10 pieces of her two and three-dimensional painted drawings, on show at Bluerider ART from March 14 to May 6.
