Artist


Born:1961
Country: United Kingdom

Sonia Boyce is a British Afro-Caribbean artist, living and working in London. Her early work addresses issues of race, ethnicity and contemporary urban experience expressed in large pastel drawings and photographic collages, questioning racial stereotypes in the media and in day-to-day life. Her work has since shifted to materially and conceptually; incorporating a variety of media that combines photographs, collages, films, prints, drawings, installation and sound. She also worked with other artists and people within 'improvisational collaborations'. Recent work brings the audience into sharper focus as an integral part of the artwork, collaboratively between artist, vocalists and audience. By doing this Boyce demonstrates how cultural differences might be articulated, mediated and enjoyed.
