I Me Mine - Looking down at the earth personal viewpoint The Boyle Family

The Boyle Family choosing locations at random using a map

Boyle Family

Study from the Broken Path Series with Border Edging - 1986

The works of Boyle Family replicate the world with the minimum of artistic intervention and as objectively as possible. They aim to make us look at reality with the same attention we would devote to a film or to the visual arts. Chance also plays an important role in determining what they will reproduce. This is one of a series of random studies of broken black and white paths, showing the process of disintegration and change. It is one of their ‘Earth Works’, in which they reproduce a section of ground, whether it be pavement, sand or soil.Accession no.

Addison Crescent Study (London Series)1969

This is part of the 'London Series' group of works by Boyle Family. It is an exact, three-dimensional replica of a kerb from Addison Crescent in West London. The artists chose this area to replicate by throwing darts, at random, at a map. The work was made by spreading a plastic substance called Epikote on the ground, which lifts up all the surface debris when removed. This was then given a fibreglass support and painted. Working in this way and recording whatever is within the chosen area, removes the aspect of subjective choice and reduces the conscious, decision-making process.

Boyle Family (Scottish, Mark Boyle 1934 - 2005; Joan Hills b. 1931; Sebastian Boyle b. 1962; Georgina Boyle b. 1963)
Mark Boyle was born in Glasgow. During the 1960s he collaborated with his partner Joan Hills (born 1931) in making assemblages of junk and found objects, before moving on to produce replicas of sections of the earth. Their project 'Journey to the Surface of the Earth' was launched in 1968 - 69. After being blindfolded, they threw darts at a world map, in order to pinpoint 1,000 areas of the earth's surface to duplicate. On travelling to a selected site, the Boyles would throw a T-square in the air to select a random area to replicate. In the 1970s their two children (Sebastian, born 1962 and Georgia, born 1963) assisted in producing these works; together they operated under the name 'Boyle Family'

I Me Mine Grayson Perry Ceramic Artist Portrait Pots

Cries Of London 1996
For Grayson Perry, this is an expression of an unrecoverable lost innocence. Pastiched with delft images of ladies in waiting, delicate flowers, teddy bears, and embossed tear-drop patterns, Perry creates a hallowed place where unhappy souls exist as golden shadows of the children they never got to be.

I Me Mine Portrait Thomas Gainsborough

Mr and Mrs Andrews 1748-49

Thomas Gainsborough (christened 14 May 1727 – died 2 August 1788) was one of the most famous portrait and landscape painters of 18th century Britain

I Me Mine This is a portrait of Mr and Mrs Andrews. They are wearing their finest clothing, with their finest hunting dog and an expensive hunting gun. The Andrews own all the estate land that we can see in this painting. So this is a perfect example of I Me Mine
