About Brianna Howard

Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

Brianna Howard is a recent graduate of Boston University where she studied Painting and Printmaking. She is originally from Jacksonville, FL, but is currently based in Boston, MA.

Airbrushes, brayers, squeegees, brushes, and various tools and textures create and inform subject matter and contribute to the mark-making of the paintings. The deployment of materials in large quantities constructs and informs the work, reflecting the macro and micro operations of the universe. In her work, Brianna creates space through gesture. Through a push and pull relationship, she aims to bring forth, and push back certain marks.

While painting, there is a constant dialogue between her, the tool, and the surface. Because of this, her paintings are living things that constantly change and grow depending on what she feels they need. She creates conditions to react to and problems to solve through the layering of paint, introducing or re-introducing tools, marks, and color. It’s as if she is solving the unresolvable.
