Anna Tanner’s recent work has found focus in the conflation of the image of mythological wild men (Sasquatch, The Yeti, Nookta) and their modern equivalents (vigilantes, explorers) with settings and objects taken from mundane, contemporary, urban, domestic and cultivated environments. Working with small, panoramic dioramas and painting, Tanner conjures mutations in space, time and scale which investigate the ways in which man can prove and exhibit bravery in a world in which so little of the natural landscape is left undiscovered, cultivated or urbanised.
Anna Tanner (b. Arkansas, 1979) lives and works in Glasgow. She completed her MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2008. Her recent exhibitions include: New Work Scotland, Collective Gallery, Edinburgh; Zoo Art Fair, London; Set It Up And Go, APS Artnews Projects, Berlin; and Last Tango In Partick, Lowsalt/Now Museum, Glasgow.
