As a scenic artist, Lacey Bryant (b. Louisville, KY, raised SF Bay Area) paints haunted houses and stage sets for parks and theatres. She also carves sculpture for parades such as the annual SF Chinese New Year parade and SF Pride. This occupation flows into her own art practice, providing visual inspiration as well as a wide range of production skills. Her work in oil is often composed from multiple sources, life, photo references, and her imagination. These paintings range from large atmospheric pieces to intimate portraits on cigar boxes. Diorama, murals and installation are natural extensions of her work in theatre. Her work is woven together by repeated symbolic motifs, and by a tension between and nostalgia and strangeness.
