Anne Spurgeon
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Greenpoint



ARTIST STATEMENT: Questions about transformation reoccur in my creative practice. My involvement began through performance, from playing guitar on stage, to creating private video performances about identity and the sense of the public and private self. In the past few years my focus has moved away from the personal consciousness of the body, to the transformation of sculptural material. Wood, concrete, metal, and textile processes inform my studio work.
