Brecken Bird

 The simplicity and subtlety of the marks made with pencil on paper have always fascinated me. I love the idea that uncomplicated tools can create complicated images, and I strive to accomplish that in my work with both materials and subject matter. There has always been a draw for me in self-discovery and growth and although my work is often shrouded in symbolism and allegory under the surface is a search for purpose and self expression. I am currently creating narrative portraits with pastel on paper. My goal is to create work that gets the viewer to slowly peel back the curtain of fantasy to reveal the reality behind it.
