Jason Brinkerhoff describes his work as “constrained by a single form—the female.” His drawings, paintings, and collages portray voluptuous female figures, often with distorted parts or truncated limbs, whose compositions allude to western art historical forbears such as Klimt, de Kooning, and Picasso. Working in charcoal, pastel, and colored pencil on aged bookplate paper, Brinkerhoff renders his images with an immediacy and energy of mark that brings his works into the present moment, despite their nod to the past. Among Brinkerhoff’s pantheon of female figures are abstracted representations of women wrestlers and fighters, sourced from old pinup photos and video stills.
