Inspired by a handwritten calligraphy notebook from childhood Briceno's artistic production aims to show the beauty of the mistake, to explore repetition and process. Freed from seeking perfection, Constanza creates asymmetrical structures across the canvas. In a methodical disorder, these structures often recall known landscapes and experiences.
"...Most of all, the acceptance and celebration of making marks no matter how ‘imperfect’ they may be, make these paintings vibrant and beautiful. She draws, paints, makes mistakes, covers, and develops her paintings over a period of time, building a history much like life, learning from mistakes and building off them."
