When: April 6-28 2012
Anita Giddings presents "Night Driving", a group of paintings based on an experience she had, while driving in an unfamiliar part of the country. She examines that moment when our common perceptions of the world fall away, and we're suddenly hyper-aware of our current moment of existence.
"...My work is based on the idea of the mysterious phenomena of the natural worlds. I explore the juncture between the known and the unknown. I feel that this borderland between the rational and the mysterious is what has driven the imagination of humankind for generations. I investigate this connection in my work - the landscape is my laboratory..."
Anita has exhibited as an artist for many years, and has worked in sculpture and installation, in addition to painting. She currently is the Coordinator of Electives Arts and Senior Lecturer of Fine Art, at Herron School of Art and Design, IUPUI.
