About the Artist: Brenda Biondo

Brenda Biondo is a American artist who uses traditional camera techniques and a formalist aesthetic to explore the perception of atmospheric light and color and their role in the construct of landscape. Her work emphasizes the use of unconventional contexts to create new ways of looking at common subjects, while challenging viewers’ perception of color and three-dimensional space. Her interest in atmospheric phenomena and other components of the natural world is informed by her degree in journalism and her previous career as a writer specializing in environmental issues.

Brenda’s work has been exhibited throughout the country and published in numerous print and online publications, including The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. Her photographs are held in numerous private and public collections, including those of the Library of Congress, the Museum of Photographic Arts, the Denver Art Museum, the Center for Creative Photography and the San Diego Museum of Art. A solo exhibit of her work opened at the San Diego Museum of Art in 2017.

Her first book of photographs, Once Upon a Playground, was published by the University Press of New England in 2014 and is now the subject of a five-year traveling exhibit organized by ExhibitsUSA.

A native New Yorker, she’s been a resident of Colorado since 1999. She currently lives in the small town of Manitou Springs, in the foothills of Pikes Peak, where the light and landscape continue to inspire her work.
