Hinge Arts at the Kirkbride is hosting a meet and greet for Annalise Bue on Tuesday, April 10th at Springboard for the Arts, 4:30 - 5:30PM. Located at 201 West Lincoln Ave., Fergus Falls, MN. We will provide beverages and appetizers and Annalise will share her work and what inspires her for her interdisciplinary art. This event is FREE and open to the public. Please share and invite family and friends.
Annalise Bue is an interdisciplinary artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota whose works speak sincerely about the psychological complexities that occur through self reflection. Through a combination of traditional and digitally made surrealist imagery, she touches on the other worldly and neurotic nature of trying to analyze one’s own perception of self.
She continues to explore a variety of mediums, typically determined by what's available at any given moment, to create slightly unnatural self-portraiture as a means to document her shifting sense of identity. Her drawings illustrate this intrinsic search for self-awareness while existing in a world full of complex relationships, past traumas and compulsions.
"I consider my own body and form the strongest tool in my visual language. It communicates to the viewer that I am only expanding on my own lived experience. Though my practice is almost explicitly autobiographical, I believe that my depiction of abstracted feelings is emblematic of the larger human condition and thus, accessible to many."
Bue additionally works directly with patients and members of the community in the mental health field. She currently is combining facets from all of the aforementioned areas of her career path through an online publication that is due to be released this forthcoming spring (2018). This online publication will serve as a space for the connections between mental health and contemporary art by virtue of featuring artists whose works contribute to this larger (human) conversation. This is the project she will be focusing on during her residency at Hinge Arts at the Kirkbride.
