JK Gallery is excited to announce an exhibition of recent work by Jennifer D
Anderson
.  This exhibition will be held from November 1 through December
20, 2008.  

Working on found ledger paper, the surface generally used for transactions
of monetary funds, Anderson combines images to highlight the uneasy
exchanges that often take place in terms of body and soul in warfare.
Injured and exposed bodies contrast with the cool crisp font of the word
cash printed at the top of each page as well as the handwritten names and
the clean lines of children playing soldiers and formal regalia of the
military.  In the artist’s own words she explains, “Without any intention of
furthering any side of the present debate regarding war, this work is about
the loss of innocence shown through the simple line figures and diagrams of
soldiers, guns and children playing with the harsh reality of loss of life
and limb that occurs in the theater of war.”
 
The visceral and corporal understanding of the body presented in Jennifer D.
Anderson¹s work arises from the folklore 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. Anderson has a MFA from the University
of Georgia and presently is the instructor of printmaking at Orange Coast
College. For more information on the artist, please see her website.
