The Sydney Art Fair 2009
Once an art fair was a concentrated event, but more and more it is a diffuse ancillary tag along glamour by association shopatons. There are spin off art fairs and design shows, museum openings, gallery exhibitions, private collection viewings. Book signings, product introductions fashion events and Sunday art parades all unfolding amid a good deal of social to-ing and fro-ing + being seen at parties, dinners, receptions + brunch's my work sold out at the show and it will be a place I will go back to.
The Cast of Friends
Tom Byrne is, like many attached men, a passive viewer of the television series 'Friends'. As a result, Tom was moved to paint six paintings inspired by the faces of the cast. They are not intended as portraits but as abstract meditations on the cult of celebrity.
The Cast of Sex in the City
Tom Byrne is, like many attached men, a passive viewer of 'Sex In The City' due to the fact that his girlfriend is addicted to the series. When the plot brought the show's heroine Carrie into a relationship with a European artist however, Tom became an active viewer and was inspired to paint four portraits representing each of the lead female characters in the series. For the record, Tom was annoyed that Carrie chose a business man over an artist in the final episode.
ANTI WAR By Tom Byrne
Recent events in the Middle East have inspired Tom Byrne to create an exhibition of works based around his opposition of all wars of any kind. The six paintings here take no political sides and point the finger in no one direction. Instead, Tom meditates on War and what it means to both the victor and the the victim. Hard hitting and provocative, these paintings also have a great beauty and Lyricism.
