Audrey Anderson's style explores the blurred lines between graphic narrative techniques and fine arts. Although she prefers archival ink, Anderson uses various mediums and techniques to overemphasize and complicate her subject matter. Armed with a Go-Pro, she captures everyday life for her inspiration “The simplicity of the every day is a great source of imaginative adventure for me”. The result is artworks which act as visual clues, sparking a sense of curiosity, and inviting dialogue within open-ended, interpersonal narratives.
Born in Sunnyside, Pretoria, Anderson, completed a BA Fine Arts (Honours) degree at the University of Pretoria in 2006. Anderson was the Winner of the 2016 SA Taxi Foundation Art Award. She has participated in numerous international and local exhibitions. Her most recent solo exhibition, Stand a little less between me and the sun was at Gallery 2, Johannesburg in 2020. She currently works from her home studio in Johannesburg.
