"Massive drawings by Brianna Angelakis are absorbing self-portraits, placing the artist among contorted shapes and forms. The graphite work impresses at any distance, and in a statement, the artist explains her pursuit in these portraits and her own state as being 'transfixed by beauty, I remain stationary amid the nonsensical world. Through a metamorphosis, my past failures transform into elements of beauty, as I become a fantastical monument to my vexation, acting within the spectacle of the absurd.'"   by Andy Smith via  Hi-Fructose Magazine
