oil on raw linen


 Boechler is a contemporary visual artist working with scent in his practice as a means to

emphasize the important and formative roles that scent plays in the lives of individuals. His current body

of work pairs custom designed scents, ranging from lemongrass to burnt rubber, alongside the original

oil paintings that they inspired. This olfactory outlet presents a multi-faceted viewing experience,

allowing for the continued exploration of the ties that exist between two-dimensional art and scent

influence on the individual. Using traditional methods in sharp contemporary context, Boechlers

paintings confront themes such as mental illness and loneliness with an often subtle execution, resulting

in works depicting circumstances that are at once banal and dramatic. Boechler exhibits internationally,

most recently presenting as the youngest artist at NordArt in Germany.
