Heidi Britt Anderson
The figures in Heidi Britt Anderson's (b. 1976) watercolour dream-scapes depict a 'meeting' of lost inhabitants. Participants floating through forests or perched on toad stools set a theme of utopian communal living and belief in a shared, glorious future. The image of community in this artist's work goes against the grain of contemporary notions of 'participatory' practice with its suggestion of opting out appealing to more transcendental notions. By forging links between imagined and 'natural' imagery, Britt Anderson begins to explore the meeting point between individual agency and the world as a given. A graduate from The San Francisco Institute Of Art BFA Anderson has had a solo exhibition at Aliceday, Brussels, Belgium and Space Gallery, Pittsburgh, PA.
