Briona Hendren is an interdisciplinary artist, based in the San Francisco Bay Area working primarily in sculpture, installation, and performance art.
She began seriously creating works of art after a chaotic change of events during her 4th year of college when she was pursuing a degree in psychology at University of Hawaii at Manoa. In May 2016, Briona graduated with her degree in Bachelors of Fine Arts Sculpture, and Museum and Gallery Methods from Sonoma State University (with distinction and honors).
Through various mediums, Briona’s art analyzes paths of the human endeavor, concepts of the human condition, and the psychological processing that is intertwined in both every step of the way.
Her work has been on view throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, and internationally.
She recently completed two residencies, one in Calgary, Canada and another in upstate New York, as well as completing a large-scale public art commission installation at SOMO Village in Rohnert Park, California.
Presently, Briona is a teacher assistant in the Commence Sculpture class at Sonoma State University, and is working on two new public art installations.
This summer, she has accepted an internship for the Hot-Metal Residency at Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minnesota.
