Lorene Anderson is a painter interested in the manipulation of two-dimensional space: math, cosmology, physics and their relationship to biology inspire her work. She frequently pours paint, and more recently, employs gestural brushwork & carved squeegees to pull paint across surfaces creating linear, layered compositions. She received her B.F.A. from Miami University of Ohio and her M.F.A. from U.C. Berkeley, where she received the Eisner Award for painting. She has been exhibiting her work in museums and galleries internationally, including the Los Gatos Art Museum, Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Kyoto Museum & Sakai City Cultural Hall (Japan). She has completed residencies with the Sam and Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts (New York) and La Port Peinte Center for the Arts (France). Anderson is represented by Markel Fine Arts in New York and K. Imperial Fine Arts in San Francisco. She lives and works in Oakland, California.
