Briony Anderson

Briony Anderson's practice ranges from studio-based work to collaborative projects, often seeking a reinvestigation of the cultural significance of landscape. Current work responds to 18th and 19th century portraiture, but only to its backgrounds (backdrops of landscape). The resulting paintings are limited solely to the landscape elements of each full image - studying the act of looking rather than direct observation. Past projects include Studies for Raeburn (Edinburgh Art Festival 2009), The Melancholy Thistle and Other Works (Aberdeen Art Gallery, 2008), Dances for Landseer, (Peacock Visual Arts 2007) and Two (AirSpace Gallery, 2007). Anderson completed her MA at The University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art in 2005. In 2010 she was awarded Acme Studio's five year Fire Station live/work residency. read full statement
