About Bob Bryden

Bob Bryden's art work exists comfortably within the traditions of minimalism and optical art. Subject is reduced to the essential elements of point, line and plane. Visual dialogue emerges from the layering of color field and pattern. Bob's work creates the impression of movement and contains hidden images, undulating surfaces and conflicting perspectives. His images are tightly structured and concise while at the same time are optically active and visually illusive. The perceptual experience of his work involves the interaction of seeing and understanding and is directly related to how vision functions.

Bob grew up in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. He is a graduate of Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. He received a masters degree in art from the University of Louisville in Kentucky. In addition to his art he has worked primarily in the areas of graphic design and printing. Today he pursues his creative endeavors in his swampside home/studio in Wilmington, NC.
