November 4, 2009: Anna Sew Hoy

Posted on November 4, 2009 by School of Art

“I want to present too many physical details, to create an overload of image and texture… The detritus of modern life is organized into something dynamic, energetic, moody, and turbulent. I work by smashing, slapping, and cobbling things together by collage. Any object or material may be used… I have an eye toward the awkward, the asymmetrical, and the irregular, and the will to bring these forms into a disharmonic beauty.” Anna Sew Hoy’s work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions, including Electric Mud (Blaffer Art Museum, Houston, 2009), California Biennial 2008 (Orange County Museum of Art), Eden’s Edge: Fifteen LA Artists (Hammer Museum, 2007), and One Way or Another: Asian American Art Now (Asia Society and Museum, New York, 2006). She has also had solo exhibitions at LAXART and Peres Projects, Los Angeles. Sew Hoy received her MFA from Hunter College, New York, in 2001 and her BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York, in 1998.
