Jana Anderson’s abstract assemblages reference technology, connection and strength. Her photographic sources come from microscopic and medical images of her own body, as well as references to cosmic or macroscopic events. Cellular structures are juxtaposed with star charts, and the architecture of the body meets the architecture of the universe.
Jana Anderson was born in Los Angeles, CA, but spent most of her formative years in Sioux Falls, SD. She received her bachelor’s degree in studio art from Hamline University (St. Paul, MN) in 2011, and her MFA in painting from Indiana University, Bloomington in 2019. She has shown her work in Sioux Falls, across the Midwest, as well as nationally. She has completed internships at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and Bohemia Galleries in York, England, as well as received numerous awards for achievements in the arts.
