The visceral and corporal understanding of the body presented in Jennifer D. Anderson’s work arises from the folk lore of her Southern Appalachian upbringing. Through the combination of hand processes and digital imaging, she examines the complexity of the human form and life, creating these hard, harrowing images tempered by their vulnerability and ephemeral nature.
Her work has been exhibited in both national and international venues and is included in several public and private collections including the Royal Museum of Fine Art, Antwerp, Belgium. Recent exhibitions of Jennifer’s work include shows at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, California, JK Gallery in Culver City, CA, as well as upcoming shows in South Korea and Russia.
Anderson received her BFA from East Tennessee State University and her MFA in printmaking from The University of Georgia in 2001. As an educator, she has taught bookbinding, printmaking and drawing at a variety of institutions from The J. Paul Getty Museum to California State University, Northridge; presently she teaches printmaking at Orange Coast College.
