Anne Krinsky is a London-based artist, born in the US. She works with paint, print, photography and video. Research underpins her practice and she has made installations in response to materials in archived collections in the US, UK and India. Fascinated by the ephemeral nature of the physical world, Anne investigates overlooked structures in the natural and lived environments. She trained as a printmaker, and layering – of ideas, images and media – lies at the heart of her process. Since 2018, Anne has been working on an international project about vulnerable wetlands and climate change. At 18th Street, she will focus on the Los Angeles River Corridor and on coastal wetlands near LA. She has been awarded an Arts Council England Developing Your Creative Practice Grant to fund her research.
Anne’s latest documentation of wetlands on England’s South Coast, culminated in two recent exhibitions in Worthing, England—outdoors on the Seafront Promenade and at the Worthing Museum and Art Gallery. Anne has been awarded an Artists International Development Fund Grant, an Artist Bursary and two Grants for the Arts from Arts Council England. Canary Wharf Arts commissioned Tropical Thames, her 2017 print installation in Crossrail Place Roof Garden, for London’s Totally Thames. The British Museum, Boston Public Library, collector Graham Gund and U.K. charity, Paintings in Hospitals have purchased her works, as have numerous corporate and private collectors. She has been in residence at METAL, Southend, England; Fundacion Valparaiso, Mojacar, Spain; Millay Colony for the Arts, Austerlitz, NY; Sanskriti Foundation, Delhi, India; Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Amherst, VA and Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus, Schwandorf, Germany, among others.
