Anne Vieux (b. 1985 East Lansing, MI) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She grew up in Oklahoma, and her home was the first on the block to have the Internet. She received an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2012 and a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2009. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including recent exhibitions, Next Wave Art at Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn; Read Image/See Text at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI.
In both her paintings, sculptures, and videos Anne works with light as an effect, process, and image. Fields of color are created from a layered process, from physical - digital - physical. These works were created by directing light, bending and scanning reflective papers over her scanner. Scanned, and digitally manipulated, zoomed in, layered, and distorted - the works read painterly. Slips of scale and texture are given attention as images are translating between media. The illusion of depth created by light and attention of the surface, visually vibrate between the flat and dimensional. Her background in programing and interest in virtual reality and the notion of the original inform the work, while her painting background and homage historical painters, such as Albers, continue to inform her artistic choices.
