Color Field: George Byrne captures urban LA 12.09.17

George Byrne’s Color Field series distils the city into colour, shape and surface. ‘While the images remain portraits of the city,’ he says, ‘they also become more abstract – based on a true story but open to interpretation.’ This approach spins simple scenes into ‘seismic moments’, with the vivid clarity of a modernist painting

George Byrne’s photography appeared in and on the cover of Icon 170, our recent California issue. An exhibition of his work, New Order, opens on 15 September 2017 at the Olsen Gruin Gallery in New York
