Featuring special guest artist Tedd Anderson!
Tedd Anderson is an artist based in Durham, NC. He grew up in Illinois and Wisconsin and received his BFA in Painting from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. His practice focuses on obsessive mark-making and intuitive, unplanned drawing.
Parsing through the cultural desert of suburbia often seems like a grasp at a split second within a flashy commercial. My work intuitively pieces together the meaningless with the meaningful. With this voracious appetite of insatiable consumption, we tear through useless advertisements to discover a single instance of clarified inspiration. Like a midwestern casserole, my drawings are layered with mystery-meat patterns, gooey mark-making, savory color palettes, and high-carb text. The meaningless begins to marinate wonderfully with the meaningful. By exploring consumer culture through a bloated lens, I create imagery that is oversaturated with improvised conclusions.
