In his recent paintings, Bryon Christman moves beyond the bounds of black and white. By superimposing blocks of color with hard angles and lively brush strokes, he creates an architectural sense of depth. The playfulness and shifting, tilting perspective in the works perhaps stem from Bryon’s own perception of the world. Byron is color blind, and therefore unable to distinguish between the contrasting teal and red in his paintings. Alternating colors, he paints in an intuitive, organic manner, building layers by focusing on line quality and overall composition. He relies on instinct versus planning.
