Bryant Girsch Artist Bio:
In my art practice I examine my cultural identity and its relation to nature. By deconstructing this relationship I create new spaces to enter into and navigate between its associated signifiers. I place myself in these gaps. These places rest between the shores of landscape painting and botanical still life – its history inexorable. In spite of this I face outwards. There is then room to consider digital consumption. There is then room to consider coded information. There is then room to consider the threat of otherness. In this state networks of interweaving systems unravel. The resulting vantage point offers new perspectives to experience contemporary culture. My relationship to painted space is informed by representations of nature. I am curious about what happens when the sensations of interacting with nature are sublimated. My subsequent investigation takes place on canvas but alludes to ulterior modes of interface: the screen, the window, the mirror. These luminal sites summon locality to a two-dimensional surface. The depicted scene’s inaccessibility contrasts its emotive characteristics to a point just shy of interactivity. I am concerned with accessing painted space because it can never be wholly achieved. The problematic nature of the endeavor fuels my investigation. With this approach in mind I layer ornate patterns with multiple fields of vision. The resulting shift in hierarchy begins to warp perspective as well as visual tonality. Navigating that space unfolds slowly akin to the intricate narratives from which its imagery is derived. In this examination I engage my present circumstances in an attempt to renegotiate my own place and function.
