Biography

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. Upcoming exhibitions of Jennifer’s work will include shows in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Champaign, Illinois.

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; including Loyola-Marymont University and the J. Paul Getty Museum.
