ONLINE: The Junior Art Major Exhibition 2020 > Vin Branom

I create art in order to share how I experience my thoughts and memories as someone with Autism and Aphantasia (the inability of the brain to create visual images). My preferred medium is painting (any kind) and digital drawing. My work is completed on a variety of canvas sizes from 2x2in to 30x35 in, and I typically finish all of my work within a 1-5 hour sitting.
I am inspired greatly by the Fauvist Movement and love working with color to express the way I feel and perceive the world around me. I only dream in colors and lists, and I am interested in sharing this process with others through my art. One of my favorite things to experiment with using color is the intricacies of the human form and expression since due to my neurological disorders I cannot process expressions with thoughts alone. I hope to make work that is not only visually appealing but also thought-provoking about different types of cognition like memory and perception.
