Keith Bryant creates work from a place that exists beyond the confines of language yet enhances the realm of understanding riddles in life, connection and independence. Working in wood, metals and ceramics his forms employ abstraction but not without metaphor. His sculptures address ideas of loneliness, isolation, architecture and landscape.
As an educator in the arts for over two decades Keith has taught for UNC Charlotte in the Department of Art & Art History since 2000. His instructional focus is ceramics, sculpture and three-dimensional design. A move in 1990 brought him to Charlotte, NC for the first time to teach at Central Piedmont Community College after teaching at University of South Carolina, Columbia. He holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, a BFA from Colorado State University and a residency at Philadelphia College of Art – today known as University of the Arts. His work has been exhibited nationally and held in corporate collections throughout the southeast and mountain states.
