Anna Rae Gilbert
Anna Rae Gilbert was born in Northwest Indiana, attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1997 – 2000, and finished her undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Art at Herron School of Art and Design in 2007. She continued with her academic career at Maine College of Art and acquired an MFA in 2009. Since then, she has retained a spirited studio practice and a distinctive signature thread throughout her entire body of work. Each piece is assembled with thoughtfulness and delicate care.
Her work is informed by an interest in architecture as a living organism, the evolution of personal and objective narrative in dwellings, and a playfulness in composition. In each piece, there are equal parts sincerity, provocation and dry humor. She has tried to categorize the thread within each work and the category she drew up was Intuitional Abstract. Her line and palette are driven with sentimentality. Tapping into emotion, nostalgia, and capturing a heightened occasions. Her paintings and prints become a souvenir and her way of offering those two dimensional and extraordinary moments.
