An ambiguous formal study, Brenna Youngblood’s 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 Youngblood’s 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.
