Live Auction “...Boynton is a masterful colorist and gesturalist, but above all her works are painterly drawings. Drawing and painting traditionally at odds (thus Poussin contra Rubens, Ingres contra Delacroix) are seamlessly, even consummately reconciled in Boynton’s works, confirming their modernist character. (Matisse was the first modernist to explicitly call for their integration.) Surface is as important for her as image. Sometimes gesture is there for its own pure sake, sometimes her grand brushwork forms richly textured planes. Sometimes it functions as a mnemonic trace of pure feeling, sometimes as an atmospheric matrix for the image. It is uncannily urgent and ingeniously autonomous like her often flamboyant color whatever its pictorial function. Integrating fantasy and purity, Boynton produces memorable works evocative of memories that run deep in all of us. No doubt her works have the improvised child-like look of Art Informel especially of the COBRA work of Karel Appel but they are in a class by themselves because they convey the tragicomic moods and perspective of the child. They do not simply appropriate or copy the “child’s art” look but are spontaneously made by Boynton’s inner child, which remains alive and well however “emotionally enlarged through the greater command of the expression-medium” than a child has, to use the words Hans Hofmann used to distinguish children’s art, “approached through the purely subconscious and emotional,” and subtly eloquent and aesthetically rich adult art, such as Boynton’s. ..” Donald Kuspit distinquished American art critic and art historian
