New Beginnings

Brittany Townsend's avatar Brittany Townsend

Self-expression, immortality, integrity, beauty, and renewal; these are just a few things the peacock symbolizes. I channel these qualities with materials that withstand the test of time, metal items that have been discarded and unused, given new life through a reinterpretation of both form and function. His many watchful “eyes” of wisdom guide us to our greatest potential; much like the many mentors and peers I have encountered on my journey toward becoming a college graduate. From them, I have received a wealth of knowledge and criticism to aid my personal and artistic growth. The outcome of such development serves not as a final product, but a new beginning.
