- Strickland's collages are beautiful, colorful, and somewhat fantastical. I admire her use of color, and the fact that I can sense her enjoyment of her own work through each piece.Marion Glass
- Brandi Strickland’s collages are a mixture of photographs, painting, and drawing. Exploring different themes, Strickland fills her compositions with people and textures, utilizing a lot of old, faded papers, and National Geographic-like magazines. Inner Space is a series about the galaxy and our world, examining topics such as overcrowding, our relationship to our planet, and our perception of space.Beautiful Decay
