Clare Bryden is an artist, writer and freelance website developer based in Exeter. Her interests are primarily in how human beings affect and are affected by the natural world of which we are part, and the related theology and psychology of connectedness. Her creative practice springs from her desire to communicate environmental and social issues, her need for hope and energy in keeping on keeping on, and her habit of making connections and finding patterns.
She works in conceptual visual art, synthesising information, textile, and representational environmental art, with a strong element of playfulness. Thus far, she has typically shown her art in the public realm, whether in collaborative projects and exhibitions, and pop-up installations as part of other events.
Clare’s background is in science, economics, energy and the environment, including employment at Cambridge Econometrics and the Met Office. She is a resident at Kaleider in Exeter, and linked in to the art.earth network. She is also an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Exeter, and on the organising team of TEDxExeter in a Storyteller role. All is grist to her mill.
