Brittany Kathryn Knapp is a New York, NY based artist who mixes wood burning and painting into her works.
Brittany describes her work by saying, “In an attempt to bring the subjects to life in my wood-burnings, I decided to cut out and project the figure into space. The shadows produced by the projections are of interest to me. We have a shadow in the place and circumstance we are in currently, and we casted shadows in the places and circumstances we were in before. Contemplating the reality of myself as evident in my shadow gave new meaning to the technique I utilize. The shadow is a convincing statement that I was once there, these things did happen to me, and I can be proud of myself for making it through such difficult times.”
