George Byrne


George Byrne creates large-scale images that depict Californian landscapes as painterly abstractions. Comparable to the works of Lewis Baltz and Ellsworth Kelly, Byrne’s collage-like photographs utilise the process of reduction; flattened lines and interjectory shadows become part of a wider dimensional puzzle that revels in texture. The images provide an alluring interplay between concrete and colour that is at once minimal and deeply complex. Lately, Byrne’s work has focused on the intricacies of the subconscious mind by tapping more into dreams and the presence of symbols. This process embraces the less literal aspects of photography.
