"Through the incorporation of a diverse range of materials, Brackens creates dynamic and thoughtful works that provide layered reflections on intimacy and being.(. . .) The new works share this ethos. Bearing fragmented reflective surfaces that reference mirrors, they too touch on notions of self-care and revelry. However, they also address the notion of “the gaze”, the harm that can be caused by the act of looking, and how gestures of deflection are often necessary in the goal of self-preservation."
