Imaginary Values was painted over the course of nine months from the winter of 2012 to the early summer of 2013. The selections were improvised under extreme conditions of hot and cold temperatures in a Chicago silkscreen factory. The color or mood from that day, week or month has been literally and figuratively included in the work, finding its way from the production floor to the canvas. Bryerton’s abstract style focuses on exploring and examining the associations between these external conditions, but also allows the viewer to recontextualize the sensations for themselves.
