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 of 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.
