by Val Britton
Val Britton creates immersive, collaged works on paper and site-specific installations that explore physical and psychological spaces. Her fragmented, exploded landscapes draw on the language of maps to explore memory, history, and the possibilities of abstraction. Britton’s work is part of numerous collections, including Arkansas Arts Center, Cleveland Clinic, de Saisset Museum, Facebook headquarters, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Library of Congress, National September 11 Memorial & Museum, New-York Historical Society, New York Public Library, and The San José Museum of Art. Britton is the recipient of many grants, fellowships, and residencies including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and a Fleishhacker Foundation Eureka Fellowship. Born in Livingston, New Jersey, Britton lives and works in San Francisco. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from California College of the Arts.
