Hilary Bryanston, South Wales artist

Hilary Bryanston is a visual artist working with painting, stone carving, ceramics & assemblage.

I see the function of Art as a way of enhancing our environment.

My own artwork is domestic in scale & has decorative elements. As a result, it fits well into a house or garden setting. I also paint furniture as well as canvas.

I feel the Art is not something that can be forced or taken. It has to flow naturally from a familiarity with it's inner language together with the limitations imposed by the use of different materials.

The story of how a painting came into existence

One day, I noticed an odd shape on the palm of my right hand.

It was roughly square - about 1/2" x 1/2" and also subdivided into four smaller squares.

My father used to read our palms when I was a child. I looked up the shape in one of his old books on palmistry - 'The Protective Square' is what it said. You have a protective square.
