  • 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.

  • Brandi Strickland’s collages are hyperreal explosions that remind us of two things: that the present is the culmination of everything that’s ever happened, and that everything new has already happened before....Her work condenses long periods of human history into short vignettes. In the title piece to her “Seed Stone” series, the Tower of Babel rises between dark industrial smoke stacks and bulbous, gray, futuristic spires that exist in a–perhaps not so distant–time where people probably have robots to do their hard work for them.  Humanoid silhouettes litter landscapes, forests, and planets. The individual is nothing compared to the infinite, yet that individual is an integral part of the way that infinity is constructed.  Each brick has its place.  Chant Om.
