Bryce Speed is a multi-medium painter whose work focuses on speaking the unspoken language of visual art through his abstract images. In a recent statement Speed said, “I create paintings that are simultaneously both abstract and representational. These works are occupied with a larger idea of structure and parts, creating an image of containment and movement. Each piece uses a personal pictogram language that is steeped in the intersectionality of nostalgia, identity, and early twentieth century abstraction. Through this visual language, I seek to classify and organize the memories and experiences that pervade the everyday.”

“My art process leads with the notion of diligence and simplicity applicable to innovative culture and traditional media. Exercising principles and design elements, such as rhythm value, line, and color, to name a few, guides my development. The complementary studies that inspire my studio habits are Community Networking Formats, Ecological Design Services, and Visual Systems.
My objective is to facilitate the movement of art and design foundations, within a nurturing studio environment, by cherishing semantic aesthetics, including the praxis of structured productivity from conventional methods, algorithmic perception, and abstract concepts. These current design objectives administer an open source of solutions, involving awareness on problem-solving, historical perspective, and practical/theoretical proficiency.
Through medium practices and fundamental foundations, it influences my research on pragmatical exploration, self-awareness, and commits to a heightened study on how progressive art and design styles have motivated relationships and environments.”
