Anna Showers-Cruser

Anna Showers-Cruser creates hybrid forms that most often propose non-hegemonic expressions of gender. ASC is interested in the possibility of calling on abstraction through sculpture, fibers, craft, and painting traditions, in order to build a lexicon of community language. Their work expands sculpturally on the foundation of forms mined from southern Queer Femme identity. Humor, body modification, protest, burlesque, kink, hospitality, and the materiality of mental illness are intrinsic to the work. Recent exhibition sites include Baby Blue Gallery, Ralph Arnold Gallery at Loyola University, Arts + Public Life Arts Incubator, the Hyde Park Art Center, the Kinsey Institute, the Vermont Studio Center, and Inferno, NYC.
