AMELIA BRIGGS The Red Arrow Gallery Website CV

Nashville, TN | Painting

Amelia Briggs is known for breaking down cartoons, comics and toys – childrens imagery associated with the building blocks of discovery and understanding. She reimagines simple lines and shapes to create objects that appear to be inflated, at once feeling personal and universal, suggestive of history and a search for identity. 

As a community we share the same visuals and details that make our surroundings home, however we each bring a unique understanding and history to the table. The bulbous and colorful paintings that Briggs creates do not spell out a specific narrative; instead they reimagine a shared language – hopefully offering a springboard of recognition and possibility. 

In addition to her role as a visual artist Briggs is the director of David Lusk Gallery in Nashville, TN and is currently teaching a professional practices course to Senior Thesis students at Austin Peay State University. Her work has been exhibited extensively and was recently featured in Native Magazine, WeHome Podcast, Peachy Keen Podcast, The Scene and Nashville Arts Magazine.
