Brianna Gribben is an artist born and raised among the pine trees and sandhills of North Carolina. She earned her BFA in Sculpture and Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. She creates as a way to understand herself, connect personal and collective narrative, and to breakdown cultural notions of gender, beauty, shame, and the grotesque.
She uses a variety of techniques including: quilting, drawing, collage, ceramics and print-making.
Her work is fueled by an insatiable curiosity about a variety of subjects. Her interests and inspirations include southern culture, radical acceptance, self-portraiture, anti-oppression theory, history, science, and zines.
