Brianne Humphreys is an Oklahoman-born artist living in Richmond, Virginia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Her current work ignores the art object and focuses instead on moving image, performance, and the idea of art as a philosophy or way of life rather than a pretty little thang on a wall. Most recent endeavors involve a semi-cannibalistic meshing together of diaristic video material (absurd/sentimental/contumacious/snarky) in attempts to jest with forms of autobiography and self-creation, presentation, and publication.
