Informed largely by the language of painting, and constructed through traditional folk method of rag rug hooking used by her grandmother, Aanrud’s work is at once a slowly stitched drawing and a labyrinthine map of the act of thinking. Aanrud’s pictorial textiles delve into a colorful plane whereas the self-referential female figures act as emotional states in physical form.
Liv Aanrud earned a B.F.A with a painting emphasis at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2001. She was awarded a full scholarship and teaching fellowship at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, where she received her M.F.A in 2011.
