Pearl Bryant was born in Pensacola, FL, and grew up on the Gulf Coast. She earned her BFA in Studio Art with a focus in painting and drawing at Auburn University. She currently lives and works in east Atlanta.
Her recent mixed media paintings focus on themes of maximalism and reuse referencing mass consumption and aesthetics. Bryant uses acrylic and nail polish palettes replete with stereotypically hyper-feminized colors and melds them with found objects and minute drawn details.
Her first solo exhibition, Happy Vacui debuted in February 2019. She has shown in juried and group exhibitions in and around Atlanta since 2016, including MINT’s EngageMINT fundraiser at Hathaway Gallery. Bryant’s piece H.V. II won Director’s Choice at Georgia Artists: A Juried Exhibition, a statewide juried exhibition. She will be showing three works in an upcoming juried exhibition Chroma at Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles, IL, in September 2019.
