In the realm of contemporary photography, George Byrne emerges as a compelling figure whose lens speaks a universally understood visual language, resonating not only within the photographic community but also echoing through the corridors of the broader art world.
“This series explores the tension between the natural and the artificial, challenging preconceptions of reality in an increasingly digital age, while also paying homage to my analogue photographic roots…The foundation of a lot of the images in this series were taken over the last few years during road trips I took around the United States. From Daytona Beach, to Death Valley, to Yellowstone National Park, these were both natural and man-made landscapes – places I’d never been.
Embedded in this series are references to magical realism, Theosophy, artificial intelligence, the New Topographics, abstract expressionism & modernism.’ – George Byrne, 2023.
Opening Event: Friday 9 February, 5 – 7pm.
