THOMAS | TREUHAFT
After receiving her BA from Georgetown University in philosophy and French, Boody moved to Paris in 1986 to study fashion design at Parsons. There she took an introductory course in photography on a whim and immediately fell in love with the medium. Upon returning to New York, she apprenticed with photographer Hans Namuth for three years and began to combine photography with interactive sculpture. With the advent of Photoshop in the early 1990s, she went on to pioneer a new form of digital photography based on composited imagery.
Boody has exhibited her work widely since the late 1980s. Recent exhibitions include "Radical Terrain" at the Rubin Museum of Art, New York; "Magical Realism" at the Houton Center for Photography: and "Fairy Tales, Monsters and Genetic Imagination" at the Frist Center for Visual Art, Dallas.
Her work is held in important collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY; and the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania. Boody's otherworldly art and homes have been featured in Telegraph Magazine, Marie Claire, Homes & Gardens, and New York Magazine. She is represented by Rick Wester Fine Art in New York, Imago Gallery in California, and by Thomas/Treuhaft for commercial commissions.
