Event Description:

WSU's Art and Design Department will host the Anda Tanaka monotypes exhibit from Wednesday, Jan. 10 through Thursday, Feb. 1 in the Watkins Gallery.

“Environment affects the maker. For some, this is evidenced by materials used, for others, hues chosen. For me, there are two opposing elements of my environment that affect my work: The buzz of anxiety in myself and the humans around me, and the centering Midwestern landscape in which I choose to live. In my work I deal with anxiety from different angles. I explore it from an analytical point of view, thinking about its causes, effects, and the feeling itself as I experience it in my body. I often employ printmaking in this endeavor as the repetitive quality of the medium lends itself to creating pieces that connote obsessiveness. My paintings and monotype prints usually come from a more intuitive, expressive place. I am drawn to making landscapes that utilize negative space and abstraction to create visual quiet and a feeling of expansiveness. In these works, I search for moments of stillness amidst perceived chaos. I am motivated as an artist to combat anxiety by examining it while seeking stillness. I advocate that we become uncomfortable with it as an underlying yet pervasive aspect of our environment.” -Anda Tanaka
