Reade Bryan

Artist In Residence

Thirty Years

Reade Bryan produces paintings on sheer silk organza, relying on a wax resist and dye technique similar to that of batik. The translucent paintings overlap and align within the metal framework of an installation, representing selected geographic regions at different intervals in history via satellite, radar reflectivity, and other system-based imagery.

Originally from Houston, TX, Bryan earned a BFA from Parsons School of Design in 2006. He has been the recipient of the AIM program (2013), which culminated with the exhibition Bronx Calling, organized by the Bronx Museum. His solo shows include REFLEX at Signal Gallery (2013), Inhabited at Wave Hill (2014), and Geomorphic Agents at SmackMellon (2021). He currently lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
