Brittany Roob Haislmaier
Brittany Roob Haislmaier was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1983. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Minor, in Art History, from The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Peck School of The Arts and studied italian art twice at Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy.
Brittany’s work embodies a multiple self, an exploration in interpreting human emotion and historical affinity, that is influenced by her relationships to numerous locales and historical epochs. Her interest in the ancient knowledge of painting techniques and symbology has been intensified by her travels to South Korea, Germany, Italy, and Mexico and throughout the United States. Her images are conceived in both traditional and experimental media and techniques in painting.
Her newest body of work is reminiscent of iconic art of antiquity, greatly influenced by the Italian Renaissance. These abstract icons portray textural palimpsests intertwined from vacant artifact remains unrecognizable to the contemporary viewer.
Her latest studio investigations include the ancient medium of egg tempera and gold leaf.
Brittany has moved to State College, Pennsylvania with her husband, and continues her artistic endeavors.
