Anne Krinsky

Artist, Curator, Journalist, Lecturer / academic, Teacher

I am a painter and a printmaker and also make site-specific installations in response to archived collections. I have received an Arts Council England Grant for the Arts for my first project with a UK archive, From Absorb to Zoom: An Alphabet of Actions in the Women’s Art Library. I previously have created installations about books and archived materials for library, museum and university settings in the United States.

I received an Artist’s International Development Fund Grant (ACE and British Council) to research traditional textiles in India. Early in 2014 I traveled to Jaipur for block printing workshops and to Delhi for a residency at the Sanskriti Foundation.

After moving to London in 2012, I returned to my printmaking roots, using print to create variations rather than editions. In 2013, I printed the Edible Colour monoprint series at the Thames Barrier Print Studio from scored and perforated laser-cut plastic. Using a combination of intaglio and relief inking techniques, I overprinted and reconfigured the component plates to generate deviations from the grid.

My solo shows include Anne Krinsky: Reconfigurations at The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, Massachusetts (2013) and the ten-year retrospective, Anne Krinsky: Time/Line, 2000-2010 at the Trustman Gallery at Simmons College in Boston (2010).

My works have been purchased by the British Museum, the UK charity, Paintings in Hospitals, the Boston Public Library, American collector Graham Gund and numerous corporate collections on both sides of the Atlantic.
