Guy Boyd was a potter and figurative sculptor noted for his
ability to capture the fluidity and sensuality of the female
form. He was also active in environmental and other causes,
including the damming of Tasmania's
Initially Guy Boyd was a potter, establishing both Martin Boyd
Pottery and later Guy Boyd Pottery. These studios produced a
wide range of modernist objects from house-wares to decorative
pieces which enjoyed strong commercial success. Iconic
Australian imagery, particularly flora and indigenous motifs,
feature heavily. This period of work is also stepped in the
'atomic age' aesthetics of the 1950s and early 1960s with a
familiar color palate and shapes that hold strong Echoes of
Eames and others.
Guy Boyd turned away from this commercial work and to a
full-time career in sculpture in 1965. His commissions include
sculptures in both Melbourne and Sydney's international
airports, Caulfield town hall, the Commonwealth Bank and has
pieces in the National Gallery, Melbourne. He has had
exhibitions of his work in Australia, England, Canada and the
US. He also won the Churchill Fellowship to study art overseas
in 1968 and was appointed the Art Advisor to Deakin University
in 1988. 'Guy Boyd' written by Anne Von Bertouch and Patrick
Hutchins was published by Lansdowne Press in 1976.
Guy Boyd was Australian Co-ordinator of 'Save Lindy Chamberlain'
and wrote the book 'Justice in Jeopardy' in her defence. He was
President of the Brighton Foreshore Protection Committee, which
he founded with a plaque commemorating his achievements in
preserving the Brighton Foreshore erected on the beach at
Brighton, Victoria, Melbourne. He was President of the Port
Phillip Protection Society and was arrested campaigning against
the damming of the Franklin River in Tasmania. He migrated to
Canada with his wife and four younger children, settling in
Toronto in 1975, but returned to live in Australia five years
later. Died 26 April 1988.
Boyd grew up with his extended family in the idyllic environs of
Murrumbeena, Victoria which served as a large, rambling
studio/house where creativity was encouraged and nurtured. His
passion for sculpture became apparent during this period and at
the age of twelve he made a conscious decision to become a
sculptor. After experimenting with many other pursuits, most
notably pottery, his ambition was realised in 1964 when he
devoted himself to full-time sculpting.
major themes that run through the work of Guy Boyd include
symbolism, myth, lovers and women. His ability to capture the
fluidity and sensuality of the human form is extraordinary. His
appreciation for the female form is widely known with the
execution of many beautiful works a testament to this
from his work as a celebrated sculptor, Guy Boyd was also father
to seven children including
and he played a major role in many environmental
issues throughout his lifetime.
