Anda describes her show as, " six dated pieces are from two opposite ideas that have been an ongoing interest of mine. The abstract structural designs are composite window frame images. The window structure provides a defined space to hold images found within frames. They are concrete but also abstract, recognizable but incomplete."
Each figure is as it appeared in old photos minus a background, keeping the focus on the pose and costume. The six images represent different ages and family grouping. The dates are specific to the original photo and combined with the image, the place the viewer in the time period.
The show opens up April 5, with an art reception May 8. Check out her amazing work at the show or everyday at the Guild!
