Amber Eve Anderson
Amber Eve Anderson is a conceptual, multidisciplinary artist whose work is rooted in ideas of home and the experience of displacement. Born and raised in Nebraska, she spent a decade relocating to South America, the Middle East, and North Africa with the State Department.
The artist uses the actions of collecting, ordering, and archiving as a way to reorient herself in her surroundings.
As distance and time give way to nostalgia and longing, she constructs lyrical narratives—part personal recollection, part objective analysis. Amber Eve Anderson uses seemingly banal objects and images to reveal the poetics of the everyday. Considered and evocative, the work conveys a sense of melancholy and loss.
Amber Eve Anderson currently lives and work in Baltimore, Maryland where she serves on the Advisory Board of the Institute of Contemporary Art and is a regularly contributing writer at BmoreArt.
She received her MFA in 2016 from the Mount Royal School of Art multidisciplinary MFA program at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Her work has been exhibited in group shows throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Finland, and Peru.
She has been awarded residencies at Wagon Station Encampment in Joshua Tree, CA and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts in Nebraska City.
In 2016 she was a Baker Artist Award Finalist—Baltimore-area awards totaling $85,000. Her self-published book, Free to a Good Home, was purchased by the New York Public Library and is sold at Printed Matter.
