Adrienne Defendi is an artist whose work explores family narratives, the ever changing perspectives of time and space, and the fragility of life. Her lifelong interests in memory and myth, narrative and nostalgia inform her photographic expression and artistic process. Employing different mediums, from analog to alternative processes and various printmaking techniques, her practice charts elements of loss and ritual, and the boundless possibilities within reiteration and experimentation. She lives and works in the Bay Area.
An award-winning artist, Adrienne has exhibited her work nationally and internationally, and extensively in the Bay Area at such venues as the Berkeley Art Center, the Center for Photographic Art, RayKo Photo Gallery, and SFMOMA Artists Gallery. A Critical Mass finalist, her work has been featured in the print publications On Death, LensWork, Don’t Smile, Shots, Light Leaks, and B&W Magazine, as well as numerous online publications including Analog Forever, Don’t Take Pictures, Lenscratch, and Your Daily Photograph.
