Los Angeles artist Brenna Youngblood stands out in an era of often-tenuous creation
Text | Maxwell Williams
In this epoch of art that often seems to lack substance and authenticity, finding a painter with both is beyond rare. Los Angeles-based artist Brenna Youngblood may work with abstraction through mixed-media, but there’s a generous point to it all – that art, through the use of veiled-yet-recognizable imagery, can elicit a different emotional response from each viewer.
Youngblood, whose work was recently acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art and had a solo exhibition, “A Phrase that Fits,” [Spring 2014] at the Tilton Gallery in New York, currently has a solo museum exhibition, “Loss Prevention” – a mix of new and old works – at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis through June 22.
