Dan Bryce uses patterns found in the natural world both microscopic and macroscopic as source material in creating mixed media work. He is also influenced by phosphene patterns, tribal art, Japanese art and modern art especially Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism.
Dan's intuitive approach utilises the accidental. Experimenting with materials, he rips, cuts and bends paper and canvas; splitting layers of pages open to reveal different textures and bled-through inks. He is interested in portraying glimpses into alternate fantasy universes but also allowing the raw contexture of the specific materials used to be entirely evident, juxtaposing tangible surfaces with phantasmagorical forms.
