Brillhart focuses on medium and material using architecture as a departure point for her paintings and sculptural collages. Generic local urban motifs provide Brillhart with initial inspiration and abstract forms. The visual notes taken from this foundation are shaped into their own internal structure, resulting in a dialogue between spaces and forms and their relationship to place. Techniques from still life, studio practice, photography, and paint are utilized to inform each object or painting. The resulting work reveals a process of adding and subtracting.
