The Artist's Work

Anna Dean is an artist, writer and performer who works between the dialectics of gender and (e)motion. 

Her fine art practice focuses on drawing, ink work and video, as well as live performance. 

The subjects of Anna's drawings are mostly women, artists, and queer icons. Her work explores feeling, faith and personality through portraits often held in medias res. 

Her video's run sound and motion alongside each other, interested in the space between word and thought, feeling and action.
