Paintings document distance between islands

Image by J.B. BoydImage by 20080613boyd.jpg "16 Miles" is a set of paintings that chronicles the distance between Caper's Island and Johns Island.

Robert Lange Studios (map) will exhibit "16 Miles" by J.B. Boyd. It will be shown in conjunction with the French Quarter Art Walk.

The paintings are on view now through June 30, at 151 East Bay St.

Charleston City Paper adds their two cents on the show:
And his technique is impressive — some paintings are so realistic, they appear to be photographs — but, like a scenic travelogue, Boyd's paintings can escape your attention, they can slip by without compelling you to pause.
