Meet The Others: Bryce Thomas
The Game Changers. The Rule Breakers. The Innovators. Discover some of the fantastic emerging talent showcasing their work at The Other Art Fair.
The Other Art Fair Sydney Artist, Bryce Thomas depicts a range of subjects in his mesmerising photographs. From portraits to vast landscapes, Bryce’s photography truly explores all aspects of human life and nature.
How would you describe your artwork?
I’d describe my portraits as intimate and visceral. If I’m taking someone’s portrait I want it to feel surreal, but not look it. I want to heighten the presence of my subject without changing their look or demeanour.
What does making art mean to you?
Art is a phenomenal opportunity to present a person or moment in an ever lasting form, that presents the subject as true to themselves, but not in a typical or conventionally striking manner.
How did you get started making art?
Just taking photos of my friends growing up. I just got more and more focused, as I explored the power of still imagery and what I could manipulate and distill through it.
What is it like to be a part of The Other Art Fair?
A weird experience of connecting with people and also leaving people to experience your art for its self. Ultimately it’s a great space to allow people to physically connect with your art and allow them the opportunity to learn more about it.
What is your favorite piece for sale on your Saatchi Art profile and why?
I have my Lake Eyre series up for sale at the moment, I find them incredibly mesmerizing and calming. Island in Lake Eyre is probably the epitome of how calming and sparse the South Australian landscape can be.
