Cameron Boyce, Emo Boy Graffiti

Focusing on the theme of interior vs. exterior life, close quarters incorporates imagery related to interiors of homes and domestic scapes, as well as scenes from the outdoors and structures seen from the outside. Shelby Feltoon and Cameron Boyce draw connections between the insides and outsides of their living spaces as they relate to their inner and outer selves. They discuss what they reveal and conceal about their personal lives through imagery in their work. Feltoon and Boyce also discuss who they let in both physically and spiritually. Themes of strength, security, stability, sensation, and softness will be especially highlighted.

About the artists

Cameron Boyce is a painter working in Stoughton MA. He graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a BFA in painting in 2017. His work fuses together patterns, text, color, and collage all while being painted on secondhand sources such as cardboard, insulation foam, and wood panels. Exploring themes of literature and childhood throughout a number of works, Boyce intertwines patterns with a large amount of poetic verses or lyrics.

Shelby Feltoon is an interdisciplinary artist and emerging curator working in Boston MA. She graduated with a BFA in Fine Arts from the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University in 2018. In January of 2018 her father gave her a set of slides he made on a road trip 40 years ago. She closely examined this gift in an attempt to understand this past version of her father seen in the slides, and she has been dedicated to exploring and preserving others’ memories and experiences through her work ever since. Feltoon has curated exhibitions at Suffolk University Gallery, Post-Cubicle Gallery, and Kingston Gallery in Boston.
