"Bryce Brown; Urban Essence - Paintings of Life in the City"
2005-06-25 until 2005-07-09
Palette Gallery
Auckland, , NZ New Zealand (Aotearoa)

In this new body of figurative work, artist Bryce Brown has set out to capture the essence of the urbanite within the urbanite. These paintings are not so much about what each of the figures do as city dwellers, but more importantly about each piece reflecting a feeling, a connection to the city and to each other. Brown’s previous work has mainly focused solely on the figures themselves with no background detail at all. Although this show is a little different in that some of the figures have been placed in an environment that links them to the city, his focus is still on the figure and capturing the feeling and emotion of that figure - but this time with an urban influence.

Brown has adapted his colour palette for this show to reflect upon the natural elements of our cities and abundance of parks and reserves that we have within them - noticing that, “New Zealanders love to be a part of the ‘great oudoors’ as much as we can - even in the cities which I feel is something quite special about our culture.” Brown says.

Activities he has observed in our urban environment are re•ected in Brown’s new paintings. Things such people-watching, couples meeting at wine bars and cafes, people young or young at heart making the most of the views from Auckland city’s hills and volcanoes - escaping the city limits for a few hours which is something we all love to do.

“The word ‘City’ conjures up lots of different feelings in people. In the use of the expression of my figures, dynamic colours, surroundings and emotive interpretation, I have aimed to capture the vibrancy of urban living.”

Bryce Brown has had a Premiere Portfolio at absolutearts.com since January 2003. View more of his work at http://www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/b/brycebrown/
