GEORGE BYRNE | VOGUE

In the lead up to his upcoming exhibition Color Field at OLSEN Annexe, George Byrne spoke to VOGUE Magazine about his greatest inspirations and motivations.

“With the camera I’m searching for that elusive sweet spot where elements align, click, and you get that alchemy. I love it in part as it is so hard to pinpoint, people write about why things work aesthetically, but I tend to think ultimately the whole thing is a mystery.”

“Tim has been very supportive and been really involved in championing my work. It’s been an incredibly rewarding partnership as I’ve been able to elevate my work onto a new level and to a new audience and I’m able to come home more often.”

GEORGE BYRNE | HEAD ON PHOTO FESTIVAL 2017 | LANDSCAPE NSW AWARD WINNER

OLSEN Gallery would like to congratulate George Byrne as the winner of this year’s Head On Photo Festival’s Landscape NSW Award. Byrne’s winning photograph Murwillumbah #1 was taken whilst the artist was in residency on the far north coast of New South Wales in 2016.

“As an artist in residence in December 2016 at a hotel on Cabarita Beach on New South Wales’s far north coast. I was struck by the region’s raw beauty and moved by the spirituality of Mount Warning as an ancient epicentre of indigenous life. Here Mount Warning is depicted in a local mural near Murwillumbah.”

His exhibition New Order opens at OLSEN GRUIN in New York this summer. Follow along on Byrne’s Instagram for updates and Olsen Gallery’s website to view his available works.
