ABOUT A.J. SPRINGER

"My work seeks to instill and dissect the connotations and emotions people associate with the human form. I focus on innate concepts held by human curiosity such as duality in nature, sexuality, violence, and primordial reactions through a fragmentation of the figure. I’m interested in pushing the viewer into an awareness of the body and our ever-changing relationship with it by challenging them to process and internalize these ideas, confronting the complexities of their own human condition.”

 

A.J. Springer (b.1993, New York) is a multi-media artist who uses a combination of printmaking, drawing, collage, painting, sculpture and woodworking to create immersive installations and 2D pieces. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in shows such as Urban Studio UnBound, New York (2018), 21 Gallery in Cologne, Germany (2017), Seoul Museum of Art, South Korea (2017) and IPCNA Cultural Museum in Lima, Peru (2016).  She currently resides and continues her practice as an artist and fabricator in NYC.
