Reflections: Regional Artist in Residence, Tedd Anderson

Moving Still by Tedd Anderson

Throughout my time as a resident artist at Artspace I have had the privilege of developing a body of work within a high exposure environment.  I’ve been able to network with many decision makers in the triangle art scene, leading to many exciting opportunities for me in the next year; one such opportunity being a solo show within the CAM Raleigh drawing show, The Nothing That Is.

The public nature of the studio has also driven me to hone my ability to lead discussions about my work with artists in the building as well as the general public.  Being supported by an established art institution has given me the confidence to develop into a wider ranging artist.

I’ve begun working on 3D works while also writing a narrative explaining the world that I have been illustrating in my new body of work.  All of these aspects of my work will come together in my Regional Emerging Artist in Residence solo show at Artspace in January of 2016.  It is a great leg up to be able to work in the Artspace environment.  I am starting to feel like a “real” artist and look forward to continued opportunities in the art world thanks to this residency.
