It’s raining owls and prayer books is the anthology of Logan based artist, Ness Bryant. An exploration of past, present and future, the diverse collection features oil and watercolours to a photographic element- both film and digital.
The title is from a line of a poem of the same title penned by the artist in 2000. The poem, and collection, represent the artists evolution, through the darkness and light of this world.
A mind influenced in early days by life in the madness of religion, to the teenage and young adulthood time of rebellion against christian ideals and the oppressive nature of our society. And now, a life lived in acceptance of the darkness in us all, but always striving to feed the light.
Ness Bryant is one of the founding members of the Curious Art co-operative, an artistic home for many different creative souls over the past twelve years based in Chinderah, northern NSW.
After relocating to Brisbane and struggling to feel artistic and creative whilst working full time in the child care industry for eight years, Miss Bryant now attempts to create whenever full time motherhood allows.
“Most of my days and night exploring this world with my young daughter and son, together, feeding the beauty of this place by living a life of gratitude and amazement for the universe in which we dwell.”
