About THE ARTIST

Briell Giancola (b.1993, lives and works in Rochester NY) brings her perspective as an artist to the mediums of both painting and installation. While working through a process of material collection, curation, and creation, the artist uses the interaction of materials and colors to create experiences in her painting and installation work . Each piece invites the viewer to participate in a dialogue between experience and material association, tactfully referencing current and historic events, tradition, emotional strain, and the rhythm of everyday life. The artist’s work is the product of intuitive response, which results in the creation and documentation of both the artist’s and viewer’s personal history, a familiar material history, and a threshold of new perspective.

Briell is currently making art in her hometown of Rochester, NY and is planning new happenings and art pieces for the coming months.
