Chance has played a significant role at different stages of my practice. For example, using gravity to determine the composition of a work by dropping cut-outs onto paper and fixing them where they land, or rolling a die to determine the sequence in which a series of works are installed.

About the Artist


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 Anderson’s work appropriates images drawn from popular culture and art historical references to explore notions of authorship, chance, reproduction and the still life motif.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.
