George Byrne Returns To Australia With New Work

Influenced by the confines of lockdown, the LA-based photographer offers a splash of colour.

By Robb Report Staff 22/10/2021

One of our favoured local artists, and a man whose work has previously graced the cover of this magazine, is returning with new work and, excitedly, a first Australian exhibition since 2019.

‘Innervisions’ proves to be a further dance of pastel colour and shape for photographer George Byrne—a series shot across Miami, Los Angeles and Sydney.

Being produced during lockdown led Byrne to greater experimentation in his work, moving beyond  ‘straight’ capture to what he dubs an “assemblage” of analogue and digital photographs collaged into increasingly abstract landscapes.

“The term innervisions relates to my own gradual departure from what is literally seen by the eye, to what is felt and imagined,” offers Byrne. “I had begun to feel the limitations of conventional photography, and this increasingly abstract approach has allowed me to push the medium beyond the facade and be more expressive.” Indeed.

George Byrne’s Innervisions runs October 27-November 13 at Sydney’s Olsen Gallery; georgebyrne.comolsengallery.com
