Linda Briskin has ever-shifting photographic enthusiasms—the ambiguities in what we choose to see and the permeability between the remembered and the imagined. Photo-collage is used to construct unique and painterly images layered with nuance and narrative which both embrace and displace the original images. For Contact 2019, she presents Reclamation, a collage constructed from over thirty photographs which reflects on the discarded junk of modern life. The green vines weaving their way around and through the detritus are a reminder of the earth’s resilience. In 2018, Briskin was selected for The New Feminist Gaze at Simeon Den Gallery in California. Her photograph Motorcycle Women was published in Best of Photography 2018 by Photographers Forum. Recently, she had a solo show at Helen & Hildegard Apothecary as part of the Junction Contact Festival, a window installation at Cutler & Gross, and participated in numerous group shows.
