Patrick Boyd creates lenticular photographs from sequences of images. Initially Boyd meticulously constructs miniature, fictitious, scenes in his studio on the Welsh borders. He then takes multiple photographs of these scenes which he then uses to create lenticular prints with a 3-dimensional effect.
Boyd's colourful and eclectic artworks are laced with humour, some works present a light-hearted take on current affairs such as 'Panic buying', (which illustrates a couple wheeling a shopping trolley full of loo roll across the globe during the onset of the global lock-downs), and some pieces celebrate historical moments such as the Moon Landing. Whatever the theme Boyd's artwork acts as a reminder not to take life too seriously..
