Gwyneth Anderson makes art so that she can:
- make time for the synchronicity, animation, and paradox of humans and not-humans;
- illuminate phenomena and systems that are invisible to us due to their normalcy or proximity;
- counterbalance depression;
- communicate honestly with people.
She's presented work in galleries, festivals, forests, and empty lots throughout the Northern Hemisphere, including with Roots & Culture, Roman Susan, Woman Made Gallery, Hyde Park Art Center, and 6018 NORTH in Chicago; the Freies Museum in Berlin; the XL Art Space in Helsinki; and @ptt in Geneva. As an artist in residence, she's gestated at the Experimental Sound Studio (Chicago), FRISE (Germany), Harold Arts (Ohio), Arteles Creative Center (Finland), and Utopiana (Switzerland).
She just moved back to Chicago from Baltimore, where she was spending time with matrilineal ghosts and researching the connections between her family's history and contemporary systemic racism. She teaches photography to teenagers at the Lutz Center for After School Matters.
