Mordants, by Mason Bryant

January 14 – February 11

Mordants, an exhibition by Fort Worth artist Mason Bryant will open Saturday, January 14 from 6 to 8 pm at The Reading Room. A mordant is a dye fixative, a chemical substance that combines with a dye or stain to permanently adhere it to a fabric or tissue. Bryant appropriates and recontextualizes gestures, texts and images of artists from the past to conjure new forms.It is a kind of alchemy.The exhibit continues through February 11, 2017.

Bryant lives and works in Fort Worth. He received an MFA from Texas Christian University and a BA from University of Texas at Arlington. His work has been shown at Conduit Gallery, Black Lodge Gallery and Fort Worth Contemporary Arts.
