Bridget Rosalia Driessen is a visual artist with a fluid practice rooted in an interest in the recitation, performance, and inheritance of certain modes of identity in relation to a variety of intimate relationships and their proclivity to haunt our interior world.
This interest has been settling on notions of child/girlhood, group dynamics, and a sort of meditation on things like naivety and sentimentality. She's also interested in power dynamics and considers the space between a variety of false binaries: male/female, adult/child, family/society, public/private, strange/familiar.
BRD was born in Minnesota and has lived and worked in Chicagoland for over thirty years. She recently completed her Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and will be a 2018 MFA candidate at CalArts in Valencia, CA.
