Steven L. Anderson
162 Years (Tree Rings Series)

2015

$4,200

About

Steven L. Anderson 162 Years, 2015 marker and pen on paper 60 x 60 inches The Tree Rings artworks are made on paper which is torn and reassembled, scratched, and sanded. From there, they are built in perhaps the same way that trees grow: starting in the center, Anderson draws circles with markers and pens that closely follow the circle before it, expanding as the rings build and bring the form into existence. The markers and pens squeak, skip, and dry out, depositing ink on the paper’s surface or bleeding below. Titled after the number of rings/years, these meditations on growth and time hope to provide a larger context for our lives. Where do our own activities, lifespans, and histories fit into the recordings made by sawed-off trees? These drawings are at once a violent death, a time machine, a hypnotist’s tool, an energy vortex. Atlanta artist Steven L. Anderson works in a variety of media to explore the nature of power, and the power of Nature. He is a 2014–15 Walthall Artist Fellow and a Studio Artist at the Atlanta Contemporary. He has exhibited in Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Miami, and Chicago.
