George Byrne | Vogue Living

 

“As an Antipodean living in the complex urban sprawl that makes up Los Angeles, George Byrne is in a unique position to observe his borrowed hometown. The Sydney bred artist has made a name both locally and internationally for his pastel-painted landscapes of the City of Angels and he returns to Sydney this month to showcase a new collection. Currently exhibiting a new body of work, Post Truth, at Woollahra’s Olsen Gallery, Byrne returns to his photographic roots, but also embraces another medium: collage. By splicing and dicing his images into compositions, Byrne reinvents cityscapes and creates a new dialogue to comment on the fractured politics of Trumpian America.

Ahead of the opening night on February 8, Vogue Living sat down to chat with the artist about his new body of work.”

Post Truth is to be opened at OLSEN Gallery by Rose Byrne on Friday 8 February 2019, 6-8pm.

Post Truth will continue from 29 January to 17 February.

GEORGE BYRNE | MONSTER CHILDREN

Santa Clarita #2, 2018, archival pigment print

Erin Bromhead of Monster Children has interviewed artist George Byrne on his current exhibition Post Truth at OLSEN Gallery.

Sydney-born, LA-based photographer George Byrne has returned to our shores with his new exhibition, Post Truth.

 

For this latest series of work, Byrne has embraced a new creative process, using photo-assemblage (or simply ‘collage’ to the less refined) to create semi-fictional landscapes from multiple perspectives. Think Google Street View, but with M.C. Escher creative directing. Before the show officially opens next Friday, February 8, I asked the disciple of shadow and shape five very pressing questions. From artistic process to George Orwell to the greatest basketball player of all time, here’s what the man behind the lens had to say. #striveforgreatness

 

Post Truth is to be opened at OLSEN Gallery by Rose Byrne on Friday 8 February 2019, 6-8pm.

Jacqui Stockdale at Artbar

On Friday 1st of Feburary Jacqui Stockdale was a guest artist at the MCA Art Bar.

Lara Merrett had curated a vibrant, artist-driven evening of art, music and performance.

The evening was called Things We Do Together  – “all about community and coming together with your fellow neighbour. Grab the opportunity to be a part of a performance – collect a lock or key at the door and find your other half throughout the night.”

Jacqui Stockdale cut silhouettes freehand with scissors, in the traditional portrait style that was very popular before photography was invented. The audience was enticed to sit for 10 minutes to have their profile rendered out of a piece of black paper. Each portrait will be added to the collection of heads and displayed in the ‘pop-up’ studio as part of the performance.
