Isabella Huffington’s mesmerizing, meditative collages aim to be a point of entry into art for those that find painting and sculpture intimidating or inaccessible. She uses the relatability of her medium as a way to engage her viewers in an exploration of the representation, progress, and repression of women in the United States today. Inspired by Buddhist art, specifically mandalas, Huffington’s work encourage a process of slow looking and immersion in her subjects, counteracting the speed-obsessed method of engaging with political issues that has become commonplace in the 21st century, and creating opportunities to pause and reflect. Her work has been exhibited at Rebecca Minkoff Art Space, Los Angeles, CA; Anastasia Photo, New York, NY; Three Squares, New York, NY; COCO-MAT (Soho), New York, NY, and others.
