About the Artist:
Leveraging striking cool tones, abstract themes, and a multidimensional style, Brittney Ciccone conveys the many facets of the human experience as not only a painter, but a visual storyteller. Her growing body of work invites viewers to lose themselves in every brush stroke while inspiring them to peer into a new reality. Brittney has a unique lyricism across the diverse body of works she paints. Each work shares collective singularity and work together in spite of, or because of their differences.
Brittney’s fascination for painting began at an early age, and her aptitude for creativity only grew by the year. This passion culminated into earning her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She now currently works and lives in Boston where she has a studio at the SOWA Artist Lofts.
Presently, Brittney conducts commissioned work for private clients and participates in various group and solo art shows. In addition to being an artist, she is a mother of a beautiful two-year-old girl.
“As an artist I create work because it is what I feel I have to do. If I didn’t have the outlet of art, I wouldn’t have any way to express my creativity. I enjoy making art for myself, and it’s nice when others take pleasure in my process as well. My goals are to continue to make art that satisfies me and make me happy.
I find my drawings are a very important factor in my artistic process. I start each faceless series with closing my eyes and putting the charcoal to the surface and let my subconscious guide my hand across the canvas. From within these marks I find figures that I then paint with an expressive movement.
I intentionally leave the charcoal marks from the drawings behind. I feel that they are needed to create the story in my paintings. I also leave most of the surface untouched it give the figures the space they need to stretch across the canvas.” (Brittney Ciccone)
