Graham Anderson divides his canvases into overlapping and illusionistic planes through his combination of densely layered pointilist marks and smooth, broad brushstrokes. With references as varied as historic trompe-l’oeil paintings and vintage magazine adverts, Anderson paints objects that appear both three-dimensional and are distilled to their most essential forms. As such, his still-lives playfully query the boundary between reality and representation.
Anderson was born in New Jersey in 1980. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Cooper Union in New York, as well as a programme at the Slade School of Art in London. Anderson has exhibited in shows at Robert Miller Gallery, James Cohan Gallery, Ashes/Ashes, White Columns, and Artspace New Haven. He has also presented solo shows with Downstairs Projects in Brooklyn and Nice & Fit Gallery, Berlin as well as Klaus von Nichtssagend, New York. In 2016 he created work for the FourAM window space in collaboration with Caitlin Keogh. In 2011, Anderson was awarded a residency at the Wiels Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, Belgium.
Anderson lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
