Five Photographs by George Byrne

George Bryne

George Byrne

Originally from Sydney, Byrne uses medium format film to create large-scale images that depict everyday surfaces and landscapes as painterly abstractions. Byrne’s keen interest in the deconstructive principles of abstract painting paired with a sharp compositional eye results in photographs that provide a contemporary perspective of LA’s architecture and landscapes, investigating the subliminal and sublime in the everyday world around us. The work also investigates contemporary ideas of big-city loneliness and isolation, using human subjects and their environments to create dream-like scenes.
