Briana speaks about her work in her own words:

My recent work continues the theme of my 2016 series, Spring/Light.The new paintings focus on the light I see in late winter-these struggling last hours waiting for spring to come. This time of year is a period of flux and longing. The warm late winter light and the golden-pink evenings foreshadow the joy that will eventually come. All year, I moved back and forth from working on glowing floral scenes to paintings of darkly shrouded shells. I found myself thinking about what these objects represented in the work.

The spring blooms and branches represent life, whatever it is; this fleeting, vibrant moment of living.The shells, although equally as beautiful, represent the past. A shell is an object that is a
remnant of what it was; it is a tie to its past life. I felt I was moving from a foreshadowing of grief to a foreshadowing of joy-yearning for new present joy, and nostalgic for old joys.
