The Art of Fluid Acrylics ~ by Artist Joyce Boyce


My expressive paintings are process driven; a meditation that allows me to tap into a connection to the world around me. Words, rhythms, images, sounds, and experiences that evoke a visceral response in me become the source and the reservoir that I draw from when I paint. 

Manipulation of paints and additives are used to create tension: warm colors vs. cool, texture vs. smooth. A painting is not complete until I sense in it a certain life or spirit.

Ultimately, it is all about the process and the physical act of creation, becoming the brush, responding to the surface, the discovery, and the evolution of the painting as it changes. It is finding just the right balance between intention and intuition to bring the composition to a satisfying conclusion.

The dynamics of each fluid acrylic painting, coaster, or piece of jewelry can never be precisely duplicated; therefore, the uniqueness of individual pieces are treasured as being a window into the spiritual nature of life.

Individual financial budgets for art vary, and I consider that when we meet to discuss what your vision is, what you would like me to create. I create art for anyone who wishes to own a unique creation from my studio for any budget. I guarantee it will be a piece of artwork you will appreciate and love for many years to come.

My art work includes recycled LP records that I turn into clocks, high heat resistant ceramic coaster tiles, 3D sculptures-like the beautiful Zia, and many on canvas of all sizes. My work is represented in Galleries in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico. I would love for you to visit me and my studio.

Joyce Boyce, an emerging fluid acrylics artist, resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is self taught in the creation of this unique style of expressive art representing the emotional challenge of allowing the mixtures of paint, additives and gravity to become the master of the artist rather than the artist mastering the paint. Her varied styling allows for organic shapes to spontaneously appear creating a free-flowing composition of motion and energy, evoking a feeling of peace and calmness or of conflict and turbulence as the viewer meditates on the symbolism that speaks directly to them.
