Bryce Watanasoponwong is a Thai-Australian artist with a passion for combining street photography and abstract art to create compositions that layer textures. He notes: “I love to explore surroundings most people pass by without ever noticing—worlds of daily lives that, upon closer inspection, open into stories of perspective.” The rippling water and sequin curtains are amongst his varied subject matter, where colours and shapes are seen close-up, obscuring the view and transforming the context of the image. The works shown here are from The Colours of Emotion series.
Bryce has participated in numerous exhibitions and art fairs in Asia, Australia and North America. He made his first US sale in May 2019 and donated the proceeds to The Association of Community Employment Program for the Homeless. Early in 2020, he gave a personal interview for Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) TV’s The Mix, which featured him and his photography, broadcast on Saturday, 14/03/2020 (https://iview.abc.net.au/show/mix/series/0/video/NC2016H008S00). In August 2020, he received an honorary mention in Life Framer’s STREET LIFE (https://www.life-framer.com/street-life-2020/), judged by the legendary conceptual documentary photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia.
“Brilliantly framed on the streets of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Bryce’s poetic street story plays out in gorgeous primary colors picked out by the setting sun. A construction worker laughs with a police officer as a bus passes by, and the central subject catches our eye. It feels wonderfully illustrative of a place – ordered chaos; busy, vibrant beauty – and of the complexity of life as elements momentarily align before fragmenting off in all directions once again.” – Life Framer
Since then, he has exhibited his work once again at Eat Me Art Restaurant (https://www.instagram.com/eatmerestaurant/), Bangkok, Thailand—this time, a select edition from The Colours of Emotion series
And, from 22/10/20 to 31/10/20, he will exhibit his work at the second edition of Venice Photo Lab (https://www.venicephotolab.it/artists-2020/) in Venice, Italy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtBy_BSwZco
