Bryony Darbon

Bryony is influenced by the ritualistic behaviour that drives human nature. She is interested in the sacred and secret realm of ceremony, in particular ancient fertility rituals, and the relics and goddesses that accompany them. This has inspired her to create her own style of performative creation, focusing on large scale paintings and pastel drawings, whereby each component is controlled by her, including hand making her own paints and pastels using pigments. This gives her a greater range of colours, another important aspect of her work, and adds to the ritualistic element of the making. Despite their very free form nature, there is a method in the process, and she hopes that while viewing her art, you will find something that speaks to your spirit, as well as your eyes.
