As I continue to make work with Chernobyl in mind, I explore toxicity and radiation and the feelings this intangible entity evokes by creating strange environments for mutated forms to occupy; these environments have distorted scale, altered perspective, and dramatic color. I make work primarily through printmaking, drawing, and painting, and combine them every now and then for some mixed media. With my print work I beckon viewers to become witnesses of something strange and unsettling, bringing deformity and mutability to the forefront.

She currently lives in Atlanta, where you can find her thinking about gopniks, Soviet disillusionment, nuclear weirdness, and making weird art about it. Anna explores toxicity, radiation, and mutability through printmaking, drawing, painting, and multimedia work and continues to respond to the effects of radiation and the feelings this intangible entity evokes.
