New Work by Brandy Barker

Chicago Artist Month Featured Artist
Working primarily in letterpress and relief, Brandy explores the psychology behind manipulative communication. Role reversals and disorientation are two reoccurring themes in her print work, blurring the lines of recognizable letterforms and “new symbols” of communication.
