Angela Anderson of Port Clyde, Maine was trained as a figurative painter at UNH, post-grad studio program at Empire State College, NYC, and printmaking at Laney College in Oakland, CA. In NYC, was a model for Philip Pearlstein, and framer at BL Frames while showing in group shows there and in Vienna, Austria. One Hit+Run led to a solo exhibit in Munich Germany and multiple collaborations with Martin Kippenberger (and being in many shows with him including at Pompidou Paris in the 90s). Videos made for his Rotterdam Museum show were shown again in 2021 in Folksvang, Essen, Germany.

An enduring love of art history continues to inform this body of work, poured stains over fragments of, and resized, 18th century French art. Lewiston Maine native art critic and poet Rene Ricard called them “Better than Boucher” on a studio visit in NYC. Angela wants to remind us of Art Histories significance, taking a small painting by Francois Boucher and under- drawing it huge, staining the large canvas with poured bleeding paints and oils and graphite clouds. Landscapes and their frames and art book captions accept richly colored stains in abstract passages of oil paint on sized cotton.

Following the inspiration and seeking to express beauty and movement within the stillness of painting.
