Anita Clearfield

Peaches for Our Unborn, Dimensions: approx. 3' x 2' x 3' 2014

Media: Oil and acrylic paint, video projection with sound, canvas, wood stretcher, feather pillow, styrofoam, burlap, plastic display case, heat duct, broken wine glass from Jewish wedding ritual.


My installations are often figurative and turbulent. By forcing together paint, video and found materials, I create uneasy alliances between historic art-making (oil paint), modern technology (video) and the larger culture (found objects). I work with my yearning for political, social and personal meaning to bring media together and artistically heal what everyday life tears apart.
