Marjorie Boyles lives and works in Chicago.
Marjorie makes Surrealistically tinged and compositionally dense paintings that draw from the historical movements of American Modernism and Abstract Expressionism.
Gestural bits of anatomy provide fleeting recognition, enough to form an uneasy sense of social location and identity. Her art questions the place of reason, spirituality, and alienation in urban America.
Ms. Boyles practiced traditional painting techniques and art history at Indiana University, Bloomington, where she received her Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting. She has two advanced degrees: Masters of Art in Teaching specializing in Art Education from Columbia College and a Master of Fine Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
