Artist Demo by Rose Bryant of Art Up Front Street Exeter
Tuesday, June 16, 6:30-8:30
Rose Bryant, abstract artist, demonstrates her organic thought process in creating her large paintings Tuesday, June 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 at Art Up Front Street in Exeter.
One of Bryant’s loves is finding that “place of being” while painting which results in a feeling of “time standing still”. Exploration of a meditative state using color and movement brings huge satisfaction to the process.
She will describe her 3 basic steps to creating her works. Tangents and alternatives while in the process will be described. Inspirations and “secrets” will be covered. For a few brief periods of time during the demo, Rose will work directly on her painting without conversation. “I love the process of large arm movements and what develops from it. I also love the decision making for the color punctuation…. the “thing” that pulls your eye and energy to a spot or a movement in the painting.”
Bryant’s large works range in size from 24×24 to 48×48 with some pieces being larger when combined in diptychs and triptychs. “I if had to pick a favorite size, I would say 48×48 inches would be the happy place. The brush stroke is big and large. There is room to think and breathe.”
Bryant’s background includes a BFA in Communications Art from Virginia Commonwealth University, managing a print advertising production department, free lance graphic design, teaching private art classes to children and adults, community art projects, exhibiting at outdoor art shows and festivals, and currently owning and operating Art Up Front Street Studios and Gallery in Exeter, NH.
