Rine Boyer's Profile
Rine's work focuses on how people view each other. It can be through a variety of lenses such as culture, gesture, or a stage of life. To capture the mixture of appearance and perception, her work use two layers. The first layer is the portrait, the appearance of the person. Over the surface of the subject she adds a layer of small iconic shapes. With each series Rine takes a different approach to continue exploring what influences our understanding of each another. Depending on the series, these shapes can reflect the subject’s interests, what they are thinking, or a characteristic that links them to a larger group. In separating the way a person looks from how I view them I show the distance we have to overcome when interacting and understanding with one another.
Rine graduated from Reed College in Portland Oregon where she recieved a liberal arts education. Deciding to focus...
