I really love the mystery in Brandon Boyd’s new artwork. Ectoplasm, the theme of his latest solo exhibit, is known in popular culture as a substance produced by physical mediums when in a trance state. But it’s not every day that spiritual Ghostbuster slime gets splashed on canvas. ‘It seems my fascination with the all things gooey and surreal has birthed into a dozen or so new paintings revolving around that touchy and occult fringed topic’, he says. Through alternating brush strokes, intermediate colours, exquisite lines and multiple mediums, Boyd fantastically communicates imaginative and energetic paintings that allow your spirit to escape into a wonderland of bliss. If you’re feeling keen, a portion of his art can be viewed on his website.
