San Francisco

Keith Boyle

Triangle Gallery

Boyle constructs and textures with plastic roofing tar which is then painted and glazed, producing warm, low-keyed colors. Pleasant landscapes within the abstract expressionist idiom. Ravello, seems Italian, probably the best in the show. Manchester, an explosive reaction to an industrial city. Off Shore, a Grecian landscape against a blue sea. All show fine color and a confidently controlled brush. Boyle is the best of the regulars at the Triangle, a new gallery with excellent ambitions but, for the most part, immature artists.
