Brenda H. Floyd – Studio 1 | Click for more

Color informs Floyd’s art as it is the foundation for her work and drives her thinking. In developing palettes, she draws from nature, whether she happens to be working abstractly or figuratively and sometimes in-between –an area she coins the “transitional”. Her figurative work informs the abstract work and vice versa. Secondary themes of rhythm, pattern, and form are developed through color relationships. The organizing basis of her compositions lies in the interactions of hue, intensity, value, and proportion that she explores between colors.

In the 1980s and 90s she worked as a professional graphics and color consultant on urban design, architecture, and publications projects. Some of her clients included the Hood Museum of Art, Centerbrook Architects, the Boston Museum of Science, the New Haven Coliseum, the Connecticut Society of Architects, the Yale School of Architecture, the University of Hartford, and the Florence Griswold Museum.
