Americana Tropicana brings the complexities of cultural systems to the forefront in his ornate patterned paintings. Calling on the aesthetic hegemony of digital media graphics and data structures, Bryant Girsch creates imagery relevant to his own contemporary being and his relationship to nature. Distanced from the sensibilities of landscape, his paintings allow for unexpected moments of exploration. This sense of discovery extends to an examination of digitalism, not only as a medium of perception, but a reorganizing force. Relative orientation, rather than a universal whole, reflects a new manner of organizing both digital structures and the systems they represent. Under this weight all factors of the environment and experience coexist in a state of active interplay. While Girsch’s primary inspiration reflects an interest in historical narrative, it is the meditative quality of his work that creates a fulfilling, unanticipated, and individual experience.
Bryant Girsch is a recent graduate of Tyler School of the Arts receiving his MFA in Painting.
