Brenna Youngblood combines painting and photography to create layered compositions that move between representation and abstraction. Culling materials from a personal image archive, Youngblood treats her own photographs as stand-ins for the found imagery typically used in collage. The resulting works, made with acrylic, resin, photographs and spray paint, are dense accumulations of voices and styles that complicate the aesthetics of urban representations.

Four new works comprise Murder by the Bank, including Witness and Capital One. In each, domestic objects (clocks, light bulbs, a kitten) seem to offer a counterpoint to their loaded titles, creating an elliptical narrative rich in its just-out-of-reach symbology.
