artist crush: paige anderson

Paige Anderson is an artist from Utah whose work is an exploration of her family and ancestry.

My most recent project represents what I have found while discovering my ancestry: repetition, consistency, veiled connections… Methodical processes also underscore the connection my work has to traditional women’s work—like quilting—as well as daily family rituals, ceremony and pursuing genealogical research… My work also explores the idea that I am but one of a string of genetically linked individuals. This notion has profound implications;… that I am but part of a grand causality.

    These are so cool. I love the quilt/tile-like designs. Anything that recalls folk art usually has my immediate interest, but I especially like how Anderson connects her artistic work with her genealogical research.
