Using a combination of digital illustration and painting tools, Skip Brea, an MFA student at Florida State University, examines the entanglements that make up our visual culture, language, and history. Through his research of historical European paintings, Brea creates scenarios and portraits of figures of color who are experiencing an unfortunate event or positioned as the undermined figure in the paintings. The figures are symbols of a culture set up in a separate narrative; they provide a foil to Brea's retelling of their fiction.
