Liston’s artistic inspiration comes largely from the late-19th century; he lists John William Waterhouse, John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Anders Zorn and William Bouguereau among his strongest influences. “As an artist my career is dedicated to the integrity and quality of representational fine art”, says Liston. “My goal is to regain the traditions of the past along with the standards of craftsmanship and training. By studying the great artists of the past, we artists of today can once again regain a full command of proficiency to create great works of art…art about life”.
Liston, American painter, was born in American Fork, Utah, in 1965. His art education started at a young age when he would go out with his mother while she painted the Utah landscape. He later went on to attend the University of Utah and Weber State; however the majority of his learning occurred in the studio and foundry of sculptor Edward J. Fraughton. Bryce’s work is shown in galleries around the country and he participates in many national and international exhibitions each year. Bryce’s artwork has won numerous prestigious awards, including The Tuffy Berg Award, The Honorary Chairman’s Award and the Southwest Art Award of Excellence at the 2010 CM Russell Auction in Great Falls, MT. His art has been published in many magazines as well as on book covers. He currently resides in Holladay, Utah, with his wife and three daughters.
