M.J. Anderson The Probability of Resemblance
In this exhibition of new work, M.J. Anderson continues working in collaboration with stone, marble and travertine. Anderson travels annually between the Northwest and the quarries of Italy to select her materials and to rough out her sculptures which are later completed in her coastal Oregon studio. Her contemporary use of marble and stone acknowledges classical sculpture while presenting a unique vision of womanhood. Her work explores the imperfections of the human figure and seeks to represent beauty beyond image. "These works continue my fascination with the torso as essence of human spirit. Each straightforward frontal pose, without drama or contortion, acts as vessel of distillation for the honesty of emotion within each figure."
M.J. Anderson has received numerous grants and awards including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Her work has been the subject of numerous one-person museum exhibitions. She has exhibited with Davidson since 1993.
