Simona Prives is a Brooklyn-based visual artist whose work includes painting, drawing, and time-based media. Having received her MFA from Pratt Institute, Prives creates immersive animated collages that incorporate a variety of themes and materials. Her work explores the dialectic of growth and decay and examines our complex relationship between the organic and the man-made.
At the Anderson Center, Simona continued her work integrating still and moving images by projecting animations onto life-sized, mixed media wall-drawings. Video footage of human activity, stop motion drawing or ink move seamlessly within select areas of her compositions, as well as interact with the overall images.
