Bryce Anderson

Born 1991, Queensland, Australia. Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.

Bryce Anderson’s practice explores the potential of images, using print, collage and painting to re-situate found material into new constellations. Anderson’s work appropriates images drawn from popular culture and art history to explore notions of authorship, chance, reproduction and the still life motif. By using this broad visual language, Anderson aims to push against the traditional divergence between figuration and abstraction, and understand what significance the act of painting still holds within contemporary art.

Bryce Anderson is represented by China Heights.
