Bridget Anthony-Hlioui’s art is a journey to find solace and connection featuring simplicity through complexity. She creates art in a variety of mediums including mixed media, photography, and ceramics. In her work, she creates a balance between perceived depth and flatness, oftentimes turning the subjects into abstractions by riddling her pieces with patterns of colors, tones, motifs, shapes, and symbols.
The process to discover her art has taken on a therapeutic role in her life. From an early age, she found herself pondering what makes a home. It has been this question that has magnetized the needle of her compass and the direction of her work. With family in the United States and Tunisia, she finds herself most at home while on the journey to find her art. Motifs and subject matter teeter between the natural and man-made as she explores her surroundings and their relation to her awareness of the spiritual and ever-present Divine.
Bridget graduated from The Corcoran School of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography in 1993. She is an advocate for art as therapy, having witnessed its benefits while living and teaching for 16 years in Virginia. Her work is shown locally and nationally. She resides with her husband and children in Alexandria, Virginia.
