Colin M. Bryce D.A.(Edin.), F.C.S.D., L.R.P.S.
Colin is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, a Fellow of the Chartered Society of Designers and a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society.
He taught in Edinburgh before joining the Design Council Scotland, becoming Chief Executive in 1987. He was appointed to Napier University in 1992 as Head of the Department of Design and in 1997 as Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Social Science. Since stepping down from full-time employment in 2006 he has pursued his own interests in art and design.
In 2011 Colin began to explore the creative potential of computer mediated photography through screen printing, etching, and more recently digital printing. His images have no deliberate theme or story attached to them. Rather, they all begin as images taken in the house, in the garden, on holiday - often simply because of a casual interest in the shape, colour, pattern or rhythm of the subject. They are then altered, sometimes unrecognisably, in scale or colour to create what is hoped is a satisfying and alternative perspective. When so much of contemporary art requires a contextual explanation, it is hoped these images work regardless of where or how they began.
