About

Chris Anderson, Small Clocks (2006), mixed media, acrylic, pastel painting and drawing. Timepieces by American artist Chris Anderson consists of a series of mixed-media paintings on paper. The metaphor for each image is a clock, with a small square signifying the “hand” rotating around the perimeter. Anderson actually sets the time when she begins each piece, then engrosses herself in the process of experimentation with materials, patterns, textures and color relationships. The artist writes, “These paintings appear as abstractions at first glance, but they are for me a very real visual diary… Each piece recalls the place in which I made the work, the world outside my studio, the time of day, the light, the sounds, and my own state of mind and heart – both spiritually and emotionally.” At 29.5" x 41.5" each, the paintings would allow extensive compositional detail, but Anderson manages to keep each one simple and streamlined. The Timepiece Series was shown at the Elaine Baker Gallery in Boca Raton, Florida and the Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For over a decade, the art of painter Chris Anderson has addressed the theme of American cultural traditions and life in the contemporary home and neighborhood. Anderson studied visual art in Italy, at the Tyler School of Art in Rome, in New York at the Pratt Institute of Art, and in California, at Scripps College (BA, 1971) and the Claremont Graduate University (MFA, 1973). The artist has received numerous awards and honors for her work, including fellowship grants from The National Endowment for the Arts (Painting), New York Foundation for the Arts (Painting), Artists Space (Artist's Grant), Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation (Painting), New York State Council on the Arts (CAPS Grant), and many research and scholarship awards, including several from The City University of New York and The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (Fulbright). From 1996 to 2000, Anderson lived and worked as a Fulbright Senior Scholar in the Arts in Berlin. The Fulbright Commission awarded her a lecturing/research grant as the only visual artist among over a hundred grantees under its auspices in Germany in 1996-97 and a renewal in 1997-98 as the first grantee in five years to receive the Honorary Fulbright Senior Scholar Award. As a Fulbright Guest Professor she taught "Experimental Painting and Drawing" for graduate and undergraduate students at The Berlin University of the Arts. In Germany the artist created over three hundred paintings for solo exhibitions at Amerika Haus Berlin, the 10. Internationalen Kunstforum at Eichhofen Palace, the Max-Planck Institut, and Galerie Dorow im Kunsthof Berlin [catalogue]. Anderson has been the recipient of residency fellowship awards from foundations here and abroad: Yaddo, Austrian Chancellery of Art, Edward F. Albee Foundation, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus, The MacDowell Colony, Deutsche Burgenvereinigung (German Castles Association, Marksburg Castle), Millay Colony, and the Fieldstead Company for work in Italy on "The Florence Portfolio", a body of prints now in the collections of the Vatican, the Armand Hammer Museum at UCLA, and over twenty university, corporate, and private collections. In 2003, she received an Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Center Award and in 2006, a renewal from the EFASC. Most recently, she was awarded a grant from the Fieldstead Foundation for work in Austria, England, and Scotland. She has lectured as a guest artist for numerous art institutions, including the Columbia University Graduate Department of Art, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of New Mexico Albuquerque, Smith College, University of Notre Dame (Pew Charitable Trust/CIVA Graduate Symposium), Fine Arts Academy of Nuremberg, Germany — and she has taught studio art on the faculties of Skidmore College, The University of Maryland, Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute of Art Manhattan, Regent College in Vancouver, Canada, and Gordon College in Orvieto, Italy, among others.

Her work was also shown at the Sato Museum in Tokyo, Japan, in "Considering Peace", a group exhibition sponsored by the International Arts Movement to benefit UNESCO. In July 2004, a solo exhibition of Chris' new work was held at Schloss Mittersill in Austria. In 2005, Chris was curated into the Corcoran Gallery of Art's benefit exhibition, "Select III, Washington Project for the Arts," in Washington, DC.

In 2006 and 2007, Anderson exhibited in solo shows of "Family Stories" at Wexler Gallery, Philadelphia, and "Timepieces" at Bellevue Gallery, Vancouver, Canada, as well as in invitational shows at Regent College and Schloss Mittersill. In 2008, Anderson was invited to participate in "Amerika trifft Bayern: 1988-2008 Jahre Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus." The exhibition with catalogue, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the exchange between the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and the Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus, was sponsored by BMW in cooperation with the cities of Schwandorf and Regensburg, Germany. From 2010 through 2013, Chris worked on The Farmer Archives, a photograph, sound, drawing, and painting installation project based on the American farm and changing rural landscape of middle America. She has interviewed, recorded, and photographed the oldest living farmers, ages 80 to 103 years, within a 160-mile radius of the geographical midpoint of the lower continental United States (latitude 39 degrees, 50 minutes, and longitude 98 degrees, 35 minutes). The exact midpoint of America is located in the middle of a hog farm 4.6 miles from a stop in the road called Lebanon, Kansas; the farmer moved the sign to keep the tourists off his land. The project participants are the great-great grandchildren of the nineteenth-century settlers who migrated west with the promise of free federal land, typically 160 acres or a "quarter-section," beginning with Abraham Lincoln's Homestead Act of 1862. Born before the Dust Bowl and Depression, these remarkable Americans lived through the era of the horse-drawn plow to tell their personal stories of life-and-death hardships, daily struggles for survival, and the simple pleasures of a childhood on an early twentieth-century farm. At present Chris is working on a new body of drawings and paintings reconfiguring art historical imagery of the Madonna and Child. The artist lives and works in New York City.
