ABOUT HUGH BYRNE

Hugh Byrne is a visual artist currently working in Cape Town. He completed an honours degree in fine art from the University of Pretoria. Whilst predominantly focusing on painting; previous exhibitions have included photography, sculpture and installation. Revisiting and recycling earlier, sometimes abandoned, painterly experiments are central to Hugh Byrne’s practice. They are the products of a constant process of creation, destruction, appropriation and rediscovery which ultimately trouble, and even collapse, the divisions between ‘painting’ and ‘object’.

‘Colour and structure are divisible as ideas but in Byrne’s paintings they are also joyously enmeshed: colour is structure. This is true throughout his inventive body of work. In his earlier works, Byrne often painted with a mapmaker’s sense of boundaries. So he stacked his colours like blocks or overlapped them as if making a collage, but he never caused them to mingle. The boundary prevailed. To a degree, this method and understanding persists in his new work. Over time, though, Byrne has allowed himself to paint in a looser and messier style. It began to suggest itself in his camouflage-like paintings from 2017, which were an advance on his earlier trompe l’œil series Orientation (2016). By the time Byrne started working on his Form Sequence series (2018), compositions featuring overlaid skins of colour and visible patterning from brushwork, his old faith in sharp lines and absolute divisions of colour had yielded. In Chorus included a display of radical studio experiments, among them cut up canvases that make Lucio Fontana’s incised canvases seem tame, juxtaposed against Rothko-esque colourfields crafted from sundered bits of studio detritus’
