Michele Bryant’s artwork explores ideas of belonging. Bryant uses plane shapes to illustrate the idea of leaving or returning to a space, but this shape will sometimes overlay a map, demonstrating that the location may journey with the traveler. Bryant’s use of maps and topography as well as the plans of buildings and houses illustrates the influence of her surroundings. Symbols of travel, return and a need for both personal space and the wider community are expressed often in Bryant’s practice. Keys, with implications of inclusion and exclusion are another recurring motif in Michele’s work.
