hi. my name is brianne and I have a problem with no solution. an obsession with no end. i’m a self-taught artist in a completely co-dependent relationship with color, and i have no plans of escaping. in fact, color is the escape. it is the language beyond words, the portal to pasts and futures as yet undiscovered, and the way in which the world speaks directly to me. and to you. to all of us who are willing to open ourselves up to this most direct and fundamental communication and communion with our environments. what appears uncomplicated on the surface takes on new weight, meaning, and memories the instant these wavelengths hit your retina. your brain may be responsible for the mechanical processing of color, but your spirit, soul and past selves transform color into something entirely different. this is the power of color: what appears to be anchored is in fact always shifting. i paint, dye, cut, glue, photograph, play in order to transform my personal existence into something shared and universal, because color is the ultimate embodiment of this human paradox: an experience that is simultaneously shared and personal. fixed and shifting. beautiful and terrifying. joyous and heartbreaking. a spectrum that contains infinite.
