Anne Muntges Artist Extraordinaire

I am obsessed with drawing. I doodle, make marks, and slap line after line down on paper and board. Drawing is the way in which I see the world and understand myself within it.

In general, when developing work, I have focus on the home as a theme. In earlier works this would mean recreating the space I physically occupied. Often that meant reflecting upon houses I lived in through drawings that explored the possibilities of what was and what could be. In Buffalo, where I began these works, it was easy to find crazy ornate homes to explore and occupy. My life was interior, and I spent a lot of time indoors. The work was fitting to the place I found myself in!

That definition has grown over the last year or two though, as I have found myself traveling more for residencies and projects. My practice was also greatly impacted by moving to Brooklyn in January of 2016. Rather than finding myself in a constant indoor space to reflect in, like I had in Buffalo, I wander around and explore.

The drawings for the show Trying to Understand the World are a reflection of me figuring out my new home. These drawings helped me to understand the space I live in more closely than I ever could have imagined.


Stop by Main Street Arts to see “Trying to Understand the World: Artwork by Anne Muntges and Sylvia Taylor”. The exhibition runs through February 17, 2017. Visit Anne’s website at www.annemuntges.com.
