brea souders

great new work by brea souders.
there's something very attractive about the colors and the smooth lines of the surfaces, which seem to transform the subjects of the photographs into symbols.

recently, brea has been working on this project during a residency in france. she says the work explores: "living as a foreigner in a place where I have deep ancestry. The images created
here have taken a looser and more dream-like turn, reflecting the feeling of becoming untethered and the desire to fit in but also not fit in."
