Brittany Vega

Brittany Vega (b. 1990, Bradenton, Florida, she/her) is a multi-media artist working in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her work explores the political and cultural intersections of an American identity. Vega uses the symbolism and associations of charged political objects as a means to investigate the fusion of the self and the participation one plays in their own American-ness.

While Vega’s practice is often material based, her concurrent research and self-identified obsession with US politics led her to depart from her typical way of making. Horrible Moral Squint I and Horrible Moral Squint II employ the use of digitally printed flags, which Vega has custom made with the image of Donald Trump shaking hands with Kim Jong-un and French president Emmanuel Macron. It’s treatment alludes to the faithless, back-door dealings Trump is often known for, and questions the legitimacy of a handshake.
