Salt Spring Public Library - Anna gustafson
Currently on view is the work of Anna Gustafson with an installation titled 'Across the River'.
Perseverance and survival when facing challenges is the core of my work. How can we counteract the pervasive hum of overstimulating distractions, in order to alter our responses from indifference and denial, to effective action? I include history, science, learning, communication in my research as well as profligate waste.
My artistic practice fuses a spare aesthetic with a sincere use of materials, to create narratives resonating with synergy between idea, material and treatment. The resulting work intrigues, engages and invites questioning and participation. My projects broadly address the imperative of survival and personal perseverance, with specific themes of communication, historical connections, scientific discoveries and their resulting consequences.
Show continues until April 2nd, 2016.
