Lightly on the Land

New works by Bryce Brown

February 2008

Exhibition at Zohar mount maunganui new zealand

Zohar Gallery
Mt Maunganui

Lightly on the Land is a body of work that captures an old world grace, beauty, style and elegance but with a twist.

These figures don’t just wile their days away in idle gossip, sipping cocktails or indulging in tea parties (although they certainly may partake in these events at times!) They are honest, humble and beautiful creatures who dwell lightly on the land, gracing it with their presence as they go about their daily lives.


Texture has always been an important part of Bryce’s work. In the past, the paint itself formed physical texture. This is still apparent in the new paintings, but they also incorporate textural elements such as images of grass, shells, woven baskets or flax mats.

Bryce’s painting style captures the boldness of the Modernists, the grace of the Masters and exude a true sense of the classic New Zealander. His works have captured the imaginations of collectors from New Zealand, the UK, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada, Australia, Scotland and in 2005 one of his works were added to the John Deere Art Collection in Illinois, USA.

The 2007 book New Zealand’s Favourite Artists features Bryce as one of the sixty artists who are currently impacting on the New Zealand art scene. His images have also been used in the 2008 Calendar of the same name, as well as other various corporate calendars throughout NZ.

This will be Bryce’s eighth solo exhibition.
 

“Bryce is an artist who moves forward in leaps from one painting to the next capturing the essence of his subjects in a distinctive style that is powerful yet subtly moving.”

Denis Robinson. Editor of New Zealand’s Favourite Artists (2007, Saint Publishing)

Being Here Exhibition 2005


St Martin's summer
122 x 84 cm
Sold


Being here is about New Zealanders, Pacifica, our culture, quirkiness and love of the outdoors - particularly the coast. Artist Bryce Brown says, “I never had any intention to paint so much scenery into my work but when you live in New Zealand and are so constantly surrounded with such beauty, how can this be avoided?”

Brown's new work reflects strongly on our personal experiences and integration with the New Zealand landscape. His figures are still strong and soulful, even more so now with the addition of the land and seascapes.

Brown has focused mainly on The Bay of Plenty but also includes some images from memories of his travels both overseas and through New Zealand.

He says, “This exhibition is about who we are as New Zealander's and how our surroundings affect us. I want the viewer to feel like they are there with the figures or maybe even imagine that they are the figures-not in a realistic sense but emotionally.”

This is Bryce Brown's third New Zealand exhibition for the year, no mean feat for any artist but Brown feels that even though this has put a lot of pressure on him as an artist and as a family man it has enabled him to progress his style and technique at a rapid pace.

Being here will be Brown's eighth solo exhibition in as many years.

His work is in private collections in New Zealand, London, Edinburgh, California, New York and more recently one of his largest works to date "Brothers" was added to The John Deere International art collection in Moline, Illinois.

He is rapidly becoming recognized as a unique figure in New Zealand art with his own distinct 'Euronesian' style..
