Brenna Youngblood: Abstracted Realities 
Seattle Art Museum
November 13, 2015 – April 17, 2016

Artist Brenna Youngblood is SAM’s 2015 Gwendolyn Knight | Jacob Lawrence Prize Winner, and her exhibition Abstracted Realities is on view at the Seattle Art Museum through April 17, 2016. The Gwendolyn Knight | Jacob Lawrence Prize is awarded bi-annually to an early career black artist—an individual who has been producing mature work for less than 10 years. 

Youngblood works in several modes of abstraction, and her pieces explore the iconography of public and private experiences and issues of identity, ethics, and representation. She utilizes objects from real life—including her own photographs, found objects, and wood—to create her layered photomontage pieces.
