Jennifer Anderson Printz

Jennifer Anderson Printz

In her studio practice, Jennifer Anderson Printz gravitates towards labor- and time-intensive processes from intricate graphite drawings to making thousands of small delicate cuts in paper with an X-acto knive. The artist’s touch is extremely important to her as it creates an intrinsic presence within her work reflecting a fragility of memory and the phenomena of meaning. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the United States and as far away as Russia and Malayasia. Printz’s art has been included in publications as diverse as Tricycle and the UK based journal Average Art. Her projects have also included a massive 120 foot mural for the Taubman Museum of Art titled Resolute Understanding of Fragile Things. Her recent scholarly output includes papers given at the SGC International, College Art Association, and Southeastern College Art conferences. The Norton Simon Museum included her essay “Print University” in Proof: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California. An active studio artist, Printz has also held leadership positions in national art organizations and currently serves on the board of SECAC.
