Born in San Francisco, raised in Honolulu, Kim Anderson divides her time between Bradenton, Florida and Berkeley, CA. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States in cities including New York, Boston, Atlanta, and Miami and has been featured in publications including New American Paintings MFA Annual, Studio Visit Magazine, Manifest INPA, and Create! Magazine. She earned an MFA from the University of Florida and BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts and is currently Associate Professor of Art at New College of Florida in Sarasota, FL.


A scavenger, collector and painter, Kim Anderson creates works that explores new fictions in the afterlife of thrift store artifacts, vernacular photography and home movies. She works across a range of media including drawing, painting, digital and analog processes, while reconciling figurative and still life traditions. She draws inspiration from sometimes imperfect or damaged vintage photographs, abstracted super 8 film stills, thrift store novelties, and more recently, stereoscopy to evoke analogies between cinematic antecedents and todays virtual realities. Through a slow process of looking she imbues each work with a careful and measured examination of shifting values encoded within the quotidian vestiges of our material culture, embracing what she describes as a melancholic kitsch. Effigies to the minutia dividing the sublime and mundane, her works negotiate competing histories and narratives, offering small, meditative vignettes through which to reflect on the fictional potential of the everyday.
