Acrylic and Paper Collage on Wood
Originally from North Carolina, Anna Rindos (b. 1988) currently works and lives in Brooklyn, NY. A self-taught artist, her solo exhibits include 'Saltine Dreams' at the Silent Barn, in Brooklyn, NY (2016). Group exhibits include, ‘Animalia’ at Local Project in Queens, NY (2017), 'Uprise : Angry Women' at the Untitled Space in New York, NY (2017), ' Collages / Mystery Meats' at Five Myles Gallery in Brooklyn, NY (2016) and 'Up For Debate' at BRIC in Brooklyn, NY (2016).
A firm believer in the power of public art, Anna has also erected a wheatpaste mural within the Silent Barn entitled 'Nefertiti' (2016).
Interested in reviving the forgotten and tossed, Anna’s collages rely heavily on found materials; highlighting what others have defined as trash.
Combining contradictory tastes and states, she creates fantastical landscapes in which commonly accepted roles and contexts are questioned.
Viewers are invited to approach gender, occupations and historical imagery in a new lens using contrasted and unexpected imagery.
