<p class="paragraph_style"><br /></p>
<p class="paragraph_style">COYER WAS BORN IN HARTFORD, CT IN 1954 WHERE HE LIVED UNTIL HE MOVED TO NEW YORK CITY IN 1980. BEFORE MOVING TO NEW YORK, HE ATTENDED TRINITY COLLEGE FOR ONE YEAR STUDYING POETRY. UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1988, HE FREQUENTLY EXHIBITED IN NEW YORK AND WAS REPRESENTED BY THE HARM BOUCKAERT GALLERY WHICH WAS LOCATED AT 100 HUDSON STREET IN TRIBECA. <br /></p>
<p class="paragraph_style"><br /></p>
<p class="paragraph_style">"SYNTHETIC" WAS THE TERM USED BY COYER TO DESCRIBE HIS WORK. IN COYER'S LEXICON, "SYNTHESIS" WAS A STYLISTIC PRINCIPLE AS WELL AS A CONCILIATORY ATTITUDE TOWARD OPPOSING IDEOLOGICAL APPROACHES TO ART MAKING. IN A 1984 INTERVIEW IN ARTNEWS, COYER STATED, "SYNTHETIC ART ACCEPTS OTHER ART."<span class="style">1</span><br /></p>
<p class="paragraph_style"><br /></p>
<p class="paragraph_style">THIS APPROACH STANDS IN STARK CONTRAST TO MANY OF THE ERA'S MORE DOGMATIC PRACTITIONERS FOR WHOM SPECIFIC MODES OF ARTISTIC PRODUCTION WERE CLOSELY ALIGNED WITH SPECIFIC MODES OF IDENTITY POLITICS.<br /></p>
<p class="paragraph_style"><br /></p>
