ARTIST TALK: PETER BYRNE 'THIS LAND'

ARTIST TALK: PETER BYRNE ‘THIS LAND’

14 Jun / 6pm – 7:30pm

 

BOOK HERE

 

A public talk from photographer Peter Byrne.

Like many people from Peter Byrne’s generation, cowboys played a major part of his childhood. In movies, books and comics, the cowboy infiltrated the lives of many, becoming a fascinating character that fed the imagination of a young mind looking for excitement and adventure.

Byrne is intrigued by the nomadic lifestyle of cowboys and the incredible landscape in which this life is played out; the great open plains, the mountains, the sun scorched earth and the big skies. The land can appear hostile and empty, and with few signs of urbanisation or human life it can feel like a place out of time, stripped bare and wild. Whether it’s the arid Mojave Desert in California or the lush green pastures of Montana, there is a great sense of peace and solitude when immersed in this land and It is impossible not to be affected by it.

Whilst the lifestyle of the cowboy may have changed dramatically over the years, the land on which they work on has remained relatively untouched. The talk aims to address the role of the contemporary cowboy and his relationship with the land, to examine how the land provides a perfect backdrop for individuals at one with nature, and how the peace and tranquility of the landscape mirrors the temperament of the cowboy.
