In residence at Bundanon

Anderson’s work explores our complicated relationship with the natural world, interweaving themes of ecological grief, accountability, vulnerability and resilience. To inform her intricately detailed drawings, she will photograph herself immersed in the landscape at Bundanon, performing unrehearsed, spontaneous physical reactions to the topography around her. Oscillating between awe, discomfort, melancholy, tenderness and solace, this solitary activity is witnessed only by a camera lens. Back in the studio, this documentation will be transformed into drawings though a process of meticulous, emotionally laden mark-making.
