Brenna Youngblood

  • Brenna Youngblood’s images reflect the experiences of a working-class woman of color growing up in Central California and eventually landing in Los Angeles. Ironically, her photo collages, assemblages, and paintings have often been compared to the work of Robert Rauschenberg or Richard Prince, but they are closer in spirit with more contemporary artists like Mark Bradford. Youngblood’s work captures a kind of social architecture, that is, an out-of-focus zone where portraits of people become landscapes and buildings become familiar characters. It is in these marginal transitions where Youngblood investigates issues of identity, race, and social status.
