Check out Brianna Voron’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brianna Voron.

Brianna, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I was born and raised in Arizona by a speech pathologist and an aerospace engineer. Thanks to the loving support of my completely unartistic family, my life has been spent in the pursuit of art in all its forms. Since 2011 my work has been shown in multiple galleries across the Phoenix valley. In May 2015 I graduated from the Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts at Arizona State University with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Painting and a Minor in Design Studies. Since then I have stayed connected to the Phoenix art community through participating in group shows and investing in community art ventures. I like to keep a close connection with physical materials, always preferring to construct and design my own work surfaces and frames. I recently completed my second year of teaching art at a charter school in Chandler, Arizona. Although I loved the experience of teaching, I am thrilled to be launching my career as an independent full-time artist.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
To be an artist, is to be a misfit. Part of accepting the job of artist for me was feeling a silly sort of pride in that idea. It is a strange dichotomy of believing you are special while, at the same time, knowing you are completely expendable. Eva Hesse understood her art to be as momentary as her short life, but her drive to create was frustratingly endless.

My art comes down to a restless need to satisfy a simple craving–to make. Whatever it might be. My work is about simplifying and making sense of the overwhelmingly complicated world I live in. Color, light, and physical materials are reason enough to inspire me. I make to make.

What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
Something that has taken me a long time to come to terms with is this idea of being an artist. Although the direction of my life has always been pointed towards art, I always had trouble accepting it. I believe this is mostly a result of the social stigma surrounding the bohemian, unstable lifestyle of an artist. Art school was no different sadly. Only one class every two semesters were offered on the topic of being a professional artist, and it never fit in my schedule. What I wish I had known earlier, is that being an artist is a perfectly acceptable career. So long as you work hard and devote all of your time to it, you cannot fail.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
People can view my official portfolio of work on my website (www.voronaesthetics.com). There I also have contact information and a calendar of upcoming shows and events I will be participating in. Following my social media is the best way that folks can support me and stay informed. My social media outlets are my Instagram (@voronaesthetics) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/voronaesthetics). I post all of my most current work and information about upcoming shows regularly.
