Brianna Angelakis: ‘Radiance’ @ Modern Eden Gallery

In true form, Modern Eden Gallery presents the new solo exhibition of Brianna Angelakis, ‘Radiance’. Let your imagination wander into this nostalgic body of work as it ruminates through the serene corridors of a childhood reverie bursting with bold textiles and vibrant compositions. Through tone and style, she encapsulates her creative vision, allowing each painting to linger more beautiful than the next.

“Working directly from life, I individually paint and draw the fabrics in my works through a system of collage. Combining pieces of my ripped, unraveled, and cut fabrics into compositions, I highlight the figure through ornamentation. Attracted to the aesthetic opportunities of costume, I resolved to utilize my collection of textiles as potential clothing articles. In my body of work, I create a dreamlike world where ribbons, lace, and fabrics engage with the figure, manifesting into spectacles of radiance and beauty.”

Brianna Angelakis was born in Massachusetts in 1990. Growing up in New England, she moved to Florida in her late teen years. In 2013, she graduated summa cum laude from Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL, with a BFA in Fine Arts, a BA in English, and a minor in Illustration. In 2017, she graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, with her MFA in Art, with a concentration in Painting and Drawing. Her work has been published by Hi-Fructose, Manifest INDA, Manifest INPA, PoetsArtists Magazine, Professional Artist Magazine, Infected by Art, and Creative Quarterly. She has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally in cities including New York, NY; Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA; Chicago, IL; Cincinnati, OH; and Frankfurt, Germany.
