Bryson Gill’s densely layered paintings explore the fine line between abstraction and figuration, all the while struggling between the rational and the natural. The composition of Gill’s ambiguous landscapes, totemic structures, and portraits remain just recognizable enough to create a spectrum of meanings and emotions. Gill has spent the last year and a half in Berlin developing a new body of work that plays with subtle humor and obscure historical references.

Gill has had solo shows at Co-Lab, Copenhagen; Triple Base Gallery, San Francisco; Kayo Gallery, Salt Lake City and Jáce Gáce, Portland. He has been featured in group shows at Gallerie Davide diMaggio, Italy; Galleri Kant, Denmark; Headlands Center for the Arts, Marin and Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, Sonoma. In 2005 he attended an artist residency at Halle 14 – Stiftung Federkiel Leipzig, Germany.
