Adrienne Anderson Georgia (20th century)
mixed media, framed, unsigned
paper size: H60" W40"

Provenance: Atlanta, Georgia private collection.

Other Notes: Born in Richmond, Virginia, Adrienne Anderson was brought up in Atlanta. Anderson has traveled extensively through the Orient, Middle East, Europe, and Central America, picking up three languages along the way. She earned an AA in Drawing and Painting and received both a BFA and MFA from the University of Georgia and has held several teaching positions before joining the faculty at The American InterContinental University in Atlanta in 1985 and currently also serving as Associate Professor of Art at Kennesaw State University.

Anderson's complex paintings - they teem with historical references - are essentially explorations of contemporary experience. She combines theme and form, to arrive at images whose narrative fragments challenge the viewer to create his or her unique responses. Her works juxtapose isolated parts: hands, heads, birds, flowers, animals - fragments suggestive of a narrative or drama, opening the door for many interpretations. Anderson intertwines unrelated images to represent how we interact, or fail to interact - that quivering line between connection and separation, union and distance. Recently, Anderson has been examining the relationship between Asian and Western iconography layering and overlapping repeating images in black and white within a limited palette. This creates a pentimento effect of images that show through in a veil-like manner. If every culture has its own visual language, then Anderson's work is an attempt to construct the perfect symbol - one that transcends cultural differences. Ms. Anderson has had over 50 one-person exhibitions in the United States and Europe.
