In Rooms Portfolio Book
In Rooms is an exploration of the body, of sexuality, of the kernels of darkness seeded within that reveal what it means to be human. Brittany’s vulnerability around depression and mental illness, around understanding the erotic and the body, of what it means to be a queer femme are all palpable. The characters and scenes she creates are like looks through the keyhole or peephole of a decedent horror movie you’ve never seen but desperately want to. In Rooms is glamorous and subversive and real. It is quite literally art.

In Rooms 2016-2017
“In Rooms, 2016-2017” is more than a series of photographs; it is the proper way to give an improper finger to our current times; a brick thrown through the window of boredom and safety, a shot in the arm of the prefabricated dreams imposed on us throughout our lives, dreams often taken for granted, misunderstood and misrepresented. What the gesture achieves is a lot more than letting some fresh air into the protected spaces of our sanitized, white picket fence collective psyche. The artist’s images are the equivalent of opening the door of an airplane at 30,000 feet above the Earth. Yet, instead of being catastrophic, the result is quite the opposite: a rebirth...

" Profound and archetypal, Brittany's book paints with radiance on darkness, demonstrating how gender mutilates and sacralizes the psyche. To view her work is an individuation itself. She is a pioneer into the feminine wild - rarely has an artist gone so nakedly into dark places as Brittany Markert whose stunning photography materializes those haunting figures: anima, trickster, persona that lurk inside the being threatening to detonate it - her books a must."

" There are whispers of Brassai, shadows of Man Ray, a hint of Edouard Boubat. But these visual musings aren't created out of the bewildered male gaze. They are authentically, accurately photographs of the female experience developed by someone so gracefully and poignantly, in touch with womanhood. Yet, however feminine, the surreal qualities lend a timeless, queer sensibility thats is absolutely captivating in its aesthetic beauty and brutal Kenneth Anger-esque sexuality."

Markert's carnivalesque photographs of people in psychodramatic encounters with other people — or even dolls [...] — are visual Zen riddles that scramble our preconceived expectations, so what we see, and how we see it, becomes a mirror for our own processes of perception.
- Eric Bookhardt, Gambit Weekly, Best of New Orleans, 2018
I can't imagine taking an image such as this that reflects both the strength that I believe all women have while also capturing the vulnerability that I expect most woman would feel being photographed (or even simply exposed to a lover) in this way. I think it's remarkable, beautiful and extremely powerful

Brittany Markert has the divine voice, a genius artist. The black introduction and ending is a brilliant statement that few people will catch onto
-Herbert Lust, Art Historian & Collector, 2016
You dig deep into feelings that many, if not all of us, share, but seldom discuss in public; you articulate them intimately, graphically, daringly and beautifully.

Dark and hauntingly beautiful, I have the distinct feeling I will be checking beneath the bed and inside closets before I turn off the lights
Not only a lovely image, but also a well crafted print. That is likewise rare these days.
