Meet the Artist – Bryony Benge-Abbott
25 August 2021
Orleans House Gallery
Come and meet the current artists in residence and find out about their research project.
During Remember the Future we have invited artists to come and explore how we can reconnect with nature. They will be completing residencies this summer and will be on-site throughout the summer. This is an opportunity to meet them and find out what they are up to. There is no need to book, just show up on the day. This is a drop-in.
Bryony Benge-Abbott is a British-Trinidadian artist, curator and producer working at intersection of art and science, with a particular focus on nature connection. Her practice spans street art to oil paintings, textile design to drawing, playing with pattern, scale and composition, and moving between symbolism, abstraction and expressionism in the search for immersive encounters with nature. She also brings a strong community engagement and participatory focus to her public realm based work. Alongside her artist practice, Bryony has 15 years experience of curating and producing social history and science exhibitions, most recently leading the inaugural public engagement strategy for exhibitions at the UK’s largest lab, The Francis Crick Institute. She has a BA Hons in Fine Art Painting from Bath Spa University and an MA in Museology with a Curatorial Fellowship at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
