About the Artist

Brittney Boyd Bullock is a visual artist living and working in Memphis, TN. As an artist working in fiber, mixed media, and abstraction, her practice explores the power and connection felt when we slow down to reimagine and reframe the observable world. Outside of her studio practice, she is a non-profit arts consultant, educator, and arts advocate.

Boyd Bullock has worked as Project Manager for the Urban Art Commission, managing Memphis's largest public art archive, and as the Partnerships and Community Engagement Manager for Crosstown Concourse & Crosstown Arts, overseeing various collaborative creative programs and exhibitions. As the former director of youth programs for the Memphis Music Initiative, she developed an award-winning program for black and brown youth where she cultivated relationships with young people and arts organizations to build spaces for youth that inspire and invite joy, truth-telling, and anti-adultist practices.

She has been awarded grants and fellowships for her work as an artist working in communities, including the Americans for the Arts Public Art Scholarship and Robert E. Gard Award, The Kresge Foundation, and the Assisi Foundation. In 2022, she was awarded the Crosstown Arts artist residency and was a recipient of the 2022 Current Art Fund grant from Tri-Star Arts.

Boyd Bullock describes creativity as a "conduit for our well-being" and a bridge that connects us to the voices of artists and people from the past. She invites us all to sit in a place of inquiry and redefine how, why, and for what purposes we create.

Artist Statement

As an artist working in fiber, mixed-media, and abstraction, my work explores the
tension between polarities- chaos and order, joy and sorrow, past and future,
representation and abstraction. Contemplative and personal, my process-driven works interrogate anxiety and wonder using materials in a new way, forcing me to make meaning in the arbitrary jumble.


My work is a sensory dwelling using repetition, color, and story in ways that trigger joy and wonder. Despite the variety of whimsical trimmings and embellishments used, each composition has a certain ritualistic repetition and tonality. I use ephemera and fiber to reimagine possibilities, create new solutions, and ask more questions. Making new contexts for old worlds can make them new again; these new versions of what already exists are how I understand the power of play, world-building, and the human
experience.
