Brett Anderson Gallery Talk

On Tuesday evening, January 22, Brett Anderson gave a talk about his show presently hanging in the Peru State College Art Gallery:

Hindsight and Rambling Ways

Anderson offered the audience an insightful and revealing discussion about his printmaking techniques and their roots in art history. You can view some pictures of the presentation at
this site, where you can also download over the next couple months images that you enjoy.

"What I find myself most entranced with is the folly of human endeavor, our frailty and vice," Anderson has said, adding "I don't view this fixation on our shortcomings as some sort of pessimistic, nihilistic indulgence; it is really an affirmation o
f humanity."

His works also embrace popular
fiction that appeals to him, including the work of Kurt Vonnegut, Charles Bukowski, Albert Camus, Umberto Eco, and Chuck Palahniuk.

Brett Anderson is currently an Artist in Residence at the Lux Center of the Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Make sure to stop by and visit "Hindsight and Rambling Ways" in the Peru State Gallery where the show will remain until 7 February.
