Oil and mixed media on canvas

"(Boxer's work is) at once lyrical and brutal, aggressively physical and ineffably elusive... his work of the 1990's is notable for its combination of the lofty values of high modernism with a sense of the outrageous, its blending of serious play with the beautiful and the abrasive, and its bridging of the gap between Baroque lushness and modernist economy, all of which makes Boxer's powerful late efforts, if anything, even more paradoxical than his work of the 1970s or 80s."
