About the Work
“I consider these varied polygons and polyhedrons as ‘natural geometry’. They are specifically structured and yet still elemental. They are both rigid and organic, finding a happy medium in a space that feels oddly familiar. The Rum and Vessel pieces play between their fixed frameworks and the organic mesh networks on their facets.” – Briona Hendren

Ambos son rígidos y orgánicos, encontrando un medio feliz en un espacio que se siente extrañamente familiar. Las piezas de Rum y Buque juegan entre sus marcos fijos y las redes de malla orgánica en sus facetas.” – Briona Hendren
About the Artist
Briona Hendren is an interdisciplinary artist whose work is an ongoing exploration of psychology, memory, and time, as it relates to identity, society, and nature.
Through the use of repetition, sculpture, site-specific interventions, printmaking, and performance, she dives into biomorphic architectural re-imaginations of memory by unearthing entangled patterns of personal narratives.
Briona received her BFA in Sculpture and Museum & Gallery Methods from Sonoma State University. In addition to her art practice, Briona is the Curator for the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation, as well as the Metal Arts Director for Chimera Arts & Makerspace.
Her work has been on view throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, and internationally. Her work can be seen at Pepperwood Preserve (Santa Rosa, CA), Ives Park (Sebastopol, CA), and SOMO Village (Rohnert Park, CA).
