If you look closely, you'll see that the walls are made of flattened cardboard boxes taped together — built by the hands of only a few with any means available to be shared and enjoyed by many.

Brillhart's "Accumulation" ties the other two exhibits together nicely, exploring medium and material with architecture as her starting point. Her paintings are made through extensive processes of layering. First, the artist creates "constructs" of various architectural found and appropriated materials, arranged into still lifes. She then photographs them, prints them onto aluminum and other materials, and then paints over them, creating elegant, minimal compositions in muted, natural tones.

Brillhart is interested in creating a democratizing relationship between photography and paint. A form of bricolage — construction or creation from a diverse range of available things — the smaller-scale works have a surprising quietness to them, giving off an almost personal sense of balance and peace. Despite the complicated processes involved in making the works, the effect is one of natural cohesion and a simple ease.
