Breanna Boulton - Artist Statement “In Pieces”

My work is about intense feelings of obligation and being locked in
situations that are beyond what any person should ever endure. It’s
about reconnecting and seeking a sense of belonging, of safety, of
family, friends, and home.

In these paintings, I’m trying to draw the viewer into the emotions
associated with leaving someone you love. Just like relationships
themselves, the aftermath of leaving has its highs and lows. The deep
grays and reds mark the fiery, angry, and depressive states of mind
while the subtle earthy tones mimic feelings of hope and neutrality.
Layers create depth and a sense of transitioning while inconsistencies
on the canvas, heavy texture, and deep gouges reference the road to new
beginnings.
