Biography

Baja, 2010David Kimball Anderson, born in Los Angeles in 1946, has been a practicing studio artist since 1969. Anderson attended the San Francisco Art Institute in the late sixties and focused studies with Bruce Nauman and James Reineking. Anderson is the recipient of three National Endowment for the Arts Individual Fellowships, a Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant, a John Michael Kohler Arts in Industry Residency Grant and he was the sole recipient of the SECA Award from the San Francisco museum of Modern Art in 1973. Anderson began his exhibition career with a one-person show at the Berkeley Art Center in 1972 followed by another solo exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1973. In 1975 he was included in the Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. His first solo exhibition in New York occurred in 1978 with the Braunstein/Thorpe/Kind collective space at 139 Spring Street. Anderson, now 74 years of age, continues to exhibit regularly both nationally and internationally.

Artist Statement

Sparks fly in Anderson’s studio. His 2014 Fire sculpture reads as a metaphor for his mastery of the earth’s most obdurate materials in the service of the most delicate, allusive ideas and tender feelings. A willing voluptuary, he finds daily life inevitably presents him with something gorgeous, evanescent and shimmering. He savors “full immersion into the process of absorbing the aesthetic to which I am naturally drawn; summer yarrow, lupine, and poppies; the fragrance of salt air, cut alfalfa, sage, and creosote in the rain; rusted parts and the night sky.”
