    Hampton Boyer’s paintings create an expanded view of the African American diaspora, incorporating spirituals, historical sayings, religious symbolism, and songs from his childhood.
  • Paying homage to generational building blocks, avenues within the African American experience and the form of the black body, Boyer’s highly-expressive works probe the relationship between the past and the present. A self-taught artist, Boyer has been expanding and refining his process to create a sustained body of work that signifies strength and depth. Boyer’s work has been exhibited in various galleries and institutions, including the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. Boyer lives and works in Norfolk, Virginia.
