Born in Sydney in 1976, George Byrne graduated from Sydney College of the Arts in 2002. After an extensive period of travel, he settled in Los Angeles in 2011, where he is currently based. His compositions refer to modern constructivism in the urban landscape. Whether in a strange set up that recalls a scene from The Truman Show or a play of brightness and shadow, which serves both an aesthetic and conceptual function, he seeks the subliminal and sublime in the everyday. His work is influenced by modernist painting, new topographic photography, the Düsseldorf school & Neil Young. George Byrne, also a musician, is the kind of photographer who compares the subtility of different cameras he uses with the subtility of the sound of guitars. Byrne’s work can be found in collections around the world and has been shown recently in Sydney, New York and Los Angeles.
