Psychological Landscapes presents large-scale charcoal drawings and video works by Brianna Lynn Hernandez Baurichter which immerse the viewer in hallucinatory environments. With a background in the performing arts, Brianna's works rely heavily on the body to create momentum both physically and conceptually. Utilizing this bodily movement as a catalyst for thought, Brianna creates works which hybridize both imagined and recollected imagery. Her works range in their final forms yet each piece originates its inspiration from the structural elements of black and white drawing. Psychological Landscapes brings together several immersive elements of Brianna's practice to create a new and unique immersion at the Arts + Literature Laboratory.
The exhibition will be on view from September 9 - September 30, 2017, with gallery hours Tues-Sat 11am-3pm or by appointment. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 7-9pm. Free and open to the public.
