Each week, The Cummer will be highlighting each of the 50 artists represented in the upcoming Folio Weekly Invitational Artist Exhibition, on view at the Museum from August 24 – December 2.
Brianna Marie Angelakis (b. 1990) is a young, American artist. She was born in Massachusetts and moved to New Hampshire during her early teen years. She moved to Florida at the end of her high school years, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Her artistic inspiration stems from her love for literature and poetry in addition to her own experiences as a young woman. She often depicts a narrative which centralizes around the female figure or child figure in nature. Her paintings evoke the strong emotions correlated with romanticism and childhood innocence, elevating the female and child into a sublime, natural world. By isolating her figures, she creates an emotional relationship between the figure and the observer. Brianna Marie Angelakis currently attends Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. She will graduate in the Spring of 2013 with a B.A. in the Visual Arts, a B.A. in English, and a minor in Illustration. Her artworks have been exhibited in various galleries located throughout north and central Florida, and she will be showing internationally for the first time in Leeds, England this December. Her works have been published internationally through print and online magazines. She currently lives and works in northern Florida.
