Michele Bryant’s work spans a variety of media: print, paint and sculpture illustrates the questions behind identity and location, and how decision ­making can be affected by the pull of these ideas.

Bryant uses a range of media to create her work, such as, hand ­drawn maps carved into wood, metal, printmaking, mould­ making techniques, resin, glass, and oil on board. She chooses the medium to best suit the concept behind the work.

Plane shapes represent the transition and connection between one locale and another. Trees and horses are signifiers of a rural upbringing and the idea of a pull or return to that kind of life is sometimes expressed in her work. Text and numbers feature as personal reminders of times, particular ages and locations. Information is often embedded into the surface texture of the work, detailing the layered thought processes around some departures and returns. Her work is represented in private and public collections nationally and internationally.
