Description

Risen
2007
Paint, spray paint and collage on canvas
49 x 36 1/2" FRAMED
An ambiguous formal study, Brenna Youngbloods Risen approaches pure abstraction. The lower half of this composition is grounded by thin sheets of paper that have been molded and layered, providing the canvas with pockets of tension. A common feature of Youngbloods collage work, this wrinkly texture alludes to her hands-on approach to making art, as well as the tactile quality of her work which borders on sculpture.
