Breanna’s work is rooted in the exploration of realism and her interest in rendering the human figure with a likeness to nature. Heavily informed by historical representational painting, she merges the melodrama of the Italian Baroque with the Pre-Raphaelite’s sense of ethereality to create compositions that blur the line between reality and a dreamlike state.
Looking within and to other artists, writers and poets, her recent work describes the feeling of perpetual anxiety through overwhelmingly busy compositions that see her subjects lost within intricate, layered patterns.
